Dr Stefan Aquilina is Director of Research and Internationalisation of the School of Performing Arts and Theatre Studies Senior Lecturer at the University of Malta. His research focuses on modern theatre, especially Stanislavsky and Meyerhold, but has wider interest in the transmission of embodied practice, amateur theatre, devised performance, and reflective teaching. Aquilina’s publications include Stanislavsky in the World (coedited with Jonathan Pitches, Bloomsbury), Interdisciplinarity in the Performing Arts (coedited with Malaika Sarco-Thomas, University Malta Press), and numerous essays in journals like Studies in Theatre and PerformanceTheatre, Dance and Performance TrainingJournal of Dramatic Theory and CriticismTheatre History Studies, and Theatre Studies International. His forthcoming monograph, which comes out in 2020 on Bloomsbury, tackles Russian modernism from the point of view of cultural transmission. Aquilina is also the director of the practice-based project Cultural Transmission of Actor Training Techniques (www.ctatt.org).
