RAT - Russian American Theatre ...

"Raugh Draft" (title):

"Rehearsals without Shows"

This is how I should call what I am doing.

I don't think that I can give straight answers to the simple questions...

My "Research Areas"? "My Interests"? "My Expertise"?

I teach. The webpages are around the classes I teach. And the research is around the subjects I teach. Directing, Acting, Drama, Film.

"Russian Theatre"? In what way? I do not teach it. Russian American Theatre (RAT) went nowhere. But what Stanislavsky, Meyerhold, Chekhov? Yes, but only as applications for acting and directing.

I direct.

I keep my notes for the shows I stage:

1. Drama and Dramaturgy

2. Concept and Pre-production

3. Rehearsal Process

[ "Live Theatre" and how to use new technologies for doing and teaching theatre. ]

* What about film?

Film is secondary.

Read teach page and new (2005) webpages at film.vtheatre.net...

"Film vs. Movies"

How useful are my webpages?

For students?



I use them, my pages.

How to Write a Research Paper:

Step 1: Select Topic

Choose an area of interest to start your topic selection
Use Explore by Topic to drill down into subject areas for more specific ideas
Search for publications related to your topic
Search every page of the entire Questia library for relevant books and articles
Narrow down your topic to refine search results
Organize your results by media or publication date;focus your research by using "Search within Results."

Step 2: Gather Information

Formulate a research question(s) to guide your research
Review content of relevant works
Use online Table of Contents, Index, and Find function to quickly locate useful information
Highlight interesting passages as you encounter them
Highlight in up to 7 different colors: all highlights are saved, with links back to sources
Make notes to capture thoughts, questions, and ideas as you read
Place notes directly into the text with "Add a Note" function
Refine your research question and do further information gathering if needed

Step 3: Write Paper

Write down your working thesis or research question
Review and reflect on work done
All your work, including bookmarks, notes, and highlights, is saved in your workspace where it is easily organized and printed
Construct your argument, with main points organized in an outline
Write rough draft, expanding on outline as needed to fulfill paper length requirements
Use your Bookshelf to quickly return to books later for additional material
Include quotes that support your points
Let "Quote and Cite" easily copy passages and create formatted footnotes
Revise rough draft to ensure strong, logical argument

Step 4: Finalize Paper

Document referenced works by creating a bibliography or Works Cited page
Let Questia create a bibliography from your sources, in your choice of citation styles such as MLA, APA, or ASA
Revise paper for spelling, punctuation, and grammar errors
Print out final revision of your paper and bibliography



1. Look for the author and credentials
2. Look at the url (.edu is best - but without a tilde or other indication it's a personal site)
3. Look for references

My research, how to do "research"? Web links for research?...
All my webpages are nothing but notes. Later came Amazon.com -- and the links to books. Recently, Questia.com with the links to the online texts. Oh yes, the Google and the content-relevant ads and search, of course.

I place on my pages everything I use myself.

Webster Dictionary? Here.

Headlines? I read news from the screen. Theatre, film, books...

A few links to organization, which explain better the new ways to learn:

The Chronicle is the No. 1 news source for college and university faculty members and administrators. A subscription to The Chronicle includes free access tit's Web site and to daily e-mail updates. chronicle.com

iste.org -- International Society for Technology in Education.

www.cosn.org -- School Networking.

www.gurunet.com -- GuruNet delivers, through its vast database, accurate, subject-specific facts in a single click, giving you access to information that would require you to wade through hundreds of links if searched using traditional search engines. Best of all, you can activate GuruNet instantly from any Windows® program – just click on your word of interest!

In addition to my eGroups, I am about to try Questia Courses (High School?)... THR331 Fundamentals of Directing Spring'06.

Updates? See page "new" or 2006.

Next research directory *

* Another page to organize other pages! That's what they mean by Web and Net! No way out! (I use this page as a gateway for Research Directory -- both, Theatre & Film).
Web in itself as a phenomena is a fasinating subject (for research)! I use Virtual Theatre directory to write about it -- live performance, film and -- webcast.

I have one directory, which I call "Theatre Theory" and The Book of Spectator with the thoughts that went too far from the instruction pages.

Read my nonfiction like POV, TECH (the webbooks began as my postmodern research projects).

My Web/Internet "history" (slides - pages, list)

I do not want to diminish the old traditional forms of academia, but we live in the midst of the greatest revolution of knowledge (Web and Internet) and academic world is to respond to the changes...

I am about to write another annual self-evaluation (2005) -- and how to describe my web madness and what it does for my academic dutties? How to translate the work invested in those electronic pages and files into the requested (normal) format?

What are the new boudaries of teaching, research and service?

... That's the question.

Shows directory PS: "creative activity" or/and "research"?

Godot'06 Theatre UAF (most recent production): dramaturg pages. Many of them in other shows directories, and the webpages themselves are the result of "research", which a director needs to do in order to create.

I teach Beckett and Absurdism and, NTL, directing is co-creating nad making cast/crew into co-authors of Beckett...

You study not only the play, but the past productions as well (hello, reference and biblio pages). You have to express yourself, i.e. to know yourself (re-evaluate, discover, re-examine and etc.) = this is how you make your partners into artists. Are they? Are you?

I have to STUDY theatre, to be a student for life. Study playwrighting, acting, stage design...

Webpages (recording my research and my thoughts) turned me into DRAMATURG (century old European tradition of literary departments with rep. theatres). By default.

Artist is not scholar. We know it.

In many ways the two are opposites. (Stoppard: Actors are opposite of people). Alas, you have to be both, when you teach!

I even had to study HTML language and became a webmaster. By default. To surve "teacher" in me? Writer?

Teacher, at least.

Recording? Writing? Broadcasting?

My Virtual Theatre research ended up in the last componet of webcast (web).


I got my own blog, which I have no time for!


Structure and system (for today and ever?) Virtual Theatre (Theatre w/Anatoly)

Directing and Shows (showcases)

Spectators as students (cyber-public)

Glossaries and dictionaries (terms and definitions)

Russian Theatre : teatr.us + Russian Cinema : kino



March 21. 2006

... 2007, 2008


Most of my writing is on metaphysics of film (nature of seeing). Philosophy of Cinema (see Film600 pages).

What do I consider "research"? Reading Deleuze? Thinking.

See.gif Non-Instructional Pages

Current Projects? Too many!

Web building takes a lot of time. I hope it will pay off in saved time next year. My classes and productions are on-line. At expence of research/writing.
Winter breaks and summers -- the only time without interruptions (four months out of twelve), but this is the same time slot I mark for the writing (nonfiction and plays).

One -- POV
and WebFilm related to this page of "virtuality" of cinema.

...and related to theatre studies -- Theory

Web as Theatre (link to http://www.internetworld.com)

Part Two of my Post-American Book (Technology)
Part One Self (Guide Page) (web-version, text-only I keep separately).

* Mostly the inner links for now -- links to myself: My Office (UAF)

How to Evaluate a Web Site

A few years ago, most instructors advised their students to be wary of information found on the Web. In the early days of the Web, there was relatively little information available that would help students with their research projects. Today, major newspapers, magazines, and professional journals are publishing on the Web, as are a growing number of state and government agencies. In addition, a growing number of libraries and museums are providing online access to their collections. Once you’ve located information on the Web, it’s important that you know how to evaluate it.

Step 1: Evaluating the Relevance of a Web Site

Step 2: Evaluating the Evidence Presented in a Web Site

Step 3: Evaluating the Author of a Web Site

Step 4: Evaluating the Publisher of a Web Site

Step 5: Evaluating the Timeliness and Comprehensiveness of a Web Site

Originally, I thought that I will kep my notes open to all. Nothing more.
