GOOGLE Doodle is celebrating Konstantin Stanislavski, whose pioneering techniques inspired the leading lights of Hollywood, from Al Pacino to James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. Here’s what we know about the Russian actor, and how he created his very own brand of theatre with Stanislavski’s System. Google Doodle is celebrating Russian actor and theatre director Konstantin Stanislavsky Who was Konstantin Stanislavski? Konstantin Sergeievich Stanislavski was a seminal Russian theatre practitioner. Born in 1863 to a hugely wealthy family, his love of the theatre was tolerated rather than actively encouraged by his family – though he was able to play around in their two private theatres. Because of his family’s views, he performed and directed as an amateur until he was 33, when he co-founded the world-famous Moscow Art Theatre (MAT) with Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko following an 18-hour discussion. As a director, actor and theatre owner he became central in giving a platform to some of the most influential Russian dramatists of the day – including Anton Chekhov, Maxim Gorky and Mikhail Bulgakov. Stanislavski was active until his final year, dying in August 1938, after suffering a heart-attack five days earlier. Three weeks after his death his widow, Lilina, received an advanced copy of the Russian-language edition of the first volume of An Actor’s Work, which she described as the “labour of his life”. Google Doodle is celebrating seminal Russian character actor Konstantin Stanislavski What productions did he stage? The MAT production of The Seagull has been described superlatively as “one of the greatest events in the history of Russian theatre and one of the greatest new developments in the history of world drama”. Stanislavski went on to direct the successful premières of Chekhov’s other major plays: Uncle Vanya in 1899 (in which he played Astrov), Three Sisters in 1901 (playing Vershinin), and The Cherry Orchard in 1904 (playing Gaev). Over the years Stanislavski was involved in ongoing experimentation, playing around with realism, naturalism and developing his own experimentation technique that became known as “Stanislavski’s  System”. He was deeply invested in exploring the psychology of every character involved in a play, and is famous for saying: “There are no small parts, only small actors.” Political turmoil in Russia from 1917 would influence what MAT could stage. Keen to keep the theatre open under Stalin, they were forced to stage plays that promoted the socialist political beliefs prevalent. The distinguished actor and director played a central role in the development of Russian theatre What was Stanislavski’s system? Stanislavski is credited with creating his very own system, developed to encourage actors to dig deep for their performances. Actors are asked to understand everything it is possible to know about the character to enable them to fully embrace their role. For example, actors are asked to think about their emotional memory, their history before the context of the play, and the subtext of their lines. Stanislavski always said the character should answer the question: “What would I do if I was in this situation?” Also known as the “magic if”, this technique means that actors put themselves into the character’s situation. The System is often conflated with “method acting” – but they are in fact distinct. Stanislavski was deeply interested in instructing and educating actors, writing a number of manuals Stanislavski believed that an actor needed to be isolated to produce a decent characterisation. He referred to this as as the “first circle of attention”, while the actor might in the “second circle”, be aware of the character he is addressing and in the “third circle”, the rest of the production. The complex method also included instructions on tempo, physical action and improvisation. His work has been hugely influential, with US director and actor Lee Strasberg utilising his teachings from the 1950s through to the 1980s. Strasberg, rather than Stanislavski, was the father of “method acting”, though it was inspired by the Russian. Inspired by Stanislavski, Strasberg coached several generations of theatre and film’s brightest lights, including Marlon Brando, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.

SURGEON, doctor, writer – there was very little Sake Dean Mahomed didn’t turn his hand to. Here’s what we know of the legacy of this extraordinary man, whose manifold achievements are celebrated by Google today. Sake Dean Mahomed set up the UK’s first ever Indian restaurant Who was Sake Dean Mahomed? Born in Patna, India, in 1759, Mahomed was taken under the wing of a British Army officer at the age of 10 after his father died. He later served in the army of the British East India Company as a trainee surgeon and honourably served against the Marathas. In 1782 he resigned from the army, accompanying his “best friend” Captain Baker to Britain. Two years later he emigrated to Cork in Ireland with the Baker family, where he studied to improve his English at a local school. There he fell in love with Jane Daly, a “pretty Irish girl of respectable parentage”. The Daly family was opposed to their relationship and the couple eloped to another town to get married in 1786. Mahomed was forced to convert to Anglicanism to marry Jane, as it was illegal for Protestants to marry those not of their faith. The couple moved to Brighton at the turn of the 19th century and had seven children. Mahomed died in Brighton in 1851, between the ages of about 91 and 92. Sake Dean Mahomed was a big thinker who made numerous contributions to British society What did the entrepreneur do in England? A man of many talents, the doctor published his book Travels of Dean Mahomed in 1794, an autobiographical narrative about his adventures in India. On moving to London, he opened the Hindostanee Coffee House, the first Indian restaurant in Britain, in 1810. The restaurant offered such delights as the Hookha “with real chilm tobacco, and Indian dishes, … allowed by the greatest epicures to be unequalled to any curries ever made in England”. Undeterred when the luxury restaurant closed down two years later, his next venture was just around the corner. On  moving to Brighton Mahomed opened the first commercial “shampooing” bath in England. He used his expertise learnt in his home state of Buzar, where he learnt various techniques to produce alkali, soaps and shampoo. The service provided a combination of a steam bath and an Indian therapeutic massage and became an instant hit. So successful was Mahomed that he became known as “Dr Brighton”, with hospitals referring patients to his care. In his heyday, he even served Kings George  IV and William IV as their shampooing surgeon. [article-rail-topic title=”MORE GOOGLE DOODLES” term_id=”9138″ posts_number=”6″ /] What is a Google Doodle?

EVELYN Dove might not be a name you’ve heard before, but her impact on British culture was significant and is still felt today. From being born in the West End to blazing a trail across Europe and the US — here’s how Evelyn made her mark on the world. Evelyn Dove was a celebrated musician and actress who rose to fame during the first half of the 20th century Who was Evelyn Dove? Dove was born on January, 11, 1902, in High Holborn to her father Francis from Sierra Leone and mother Augusta, who was English. She was the youngest of the couple’s two children — with her older brother Frank later going on to study at Oxford before fighting for Britain in World War One. During his time in the armed forces Frank was awarded the Military Medal. From a young age, Dove showed exceptional promise as a musician, with her talent at both singing and the piano shining through. Dove, centre, performs in 1930 She studied at the Royal Academy of Music between 1917 and 1919. Her graduation year was the cause for double celebration as she married husband Milton Alphonso Luke. Dove was to later marry two more times, to Felix Allen and then to William Newton Brantley, whom she stayed with until her death. Soon after she joined the SSO (Southern Syncopated Orchestra) a band made up of British West Indian, West African and American musicians. The group helped to introduce and popularise black music around the UK. Google celebrated her life with a Doodle on January 11, 2019, on what would have been her 117th birthday. Evelyn Dove is being remembered with a Google Doodle Life with the SSO SSO journeyed across the UK performing but in October 1921 tragedy struck when the ship they were sailing on from Glasgow to Dublin collided with another vessel and left 35 passengers dead when it sank off the west coast of Scotland. Dove survived and continued to perform and in 1925 joined the Chocolate Kiddies, a group based in the US who were on a tour of Europe when their paths crossed. From here Dove’s star rose rapidly and she even performed in front of future Soviet dictator Josef Stalin in the USSR. The peak of Dove’s career came between 1939 and 1949 when she had a regular role on BBC Radio, performing Serenade in Sepia, a series so popular it later become a TV show. She also had roles in the West End. Much of her life was recorded by Stephen Bourne, who had researched her for the Dictionary of National Biography. In 1987 Dove died in Epsom, Surrey, following a bout of pneumonia at the age of 84. Her work was highlighted by journalist and broadcaster Moira Stuart in the early 90s – in part for the way it opened up new opportunities for black women in British entertainment.
