Vladislav Nastavshev

Vladislav Nastavshev
  • Full name: Vladislav Nastavshev

Three countries influenced the course of life and the art of Vladislav Nastavshev: Latvia, Russia and England. He was born and grew up in Riga, then he left to Saint-Petersburg to study acting under the direction of Lev Dodin at the Academy of Theatre Arts. Then he decided to train as a director and continued his studies in London, where he directed “Rudin”, based on the novel by Ivan Turgenev, as well as “Miss Julie” by August Strindberg. 

After returning to Latvia, he directed several productions in different theatres in Riga including “Boys smell like oranges” based on Guy Davenport’s novel and “Dark avenues” based on the series of short stories by Ivan Bunin. 
Before the invitation to the Gogol Center, Nastavshev had never directed any performance in the Russian language. Being a director with radical convictions, Nastavshev always challenges his actors with very complex conditions. However, this method leads to lyrical and sensual performances, which emanate tenderness and joy of life.
