My name is Gur Arie Piepskovitz I’m A Hebrew tutor a theatre and
performance maker residing in London since July 2014.
I was born in Israel in 1986. I grew up in the outskirts of Tel- Aviv and lived in Tel-Aviv most of my adulthood. I attended the prestigious arts school Thelma Yellin followed by the Yоrаm Lowenstein acting Studio where I graduated in 2009. I completed а Master’s degree in Performance at Goldsmiths University of London in 2016. Alongside tutoring I have been presenting my work in different venues around the UK, such as:
Royal Vauxhall Tavern Hall, Greenside at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Belgrade theatre in Coventry, and the Camden People’s Theatre. Of the latter, “Don’t F**k with my Unicorn!”, Tim Bano wrote for “The Stage:” Gur Arie Piepskovitz’s montage piece is a bewildering celebration of those quirks –like a unicorn horn that makes us unique –a skewering of contemporary culture at every level"
Since 2015 I have been teaching Hebrew in London, there are great results and moreover Hebrew tutoring provides me with а connection to my roots. In my productions I put an emphasis on the actor or performer and I am experienced in achieving a performance that will satisfy and my actor and myself.
I am hard working and I believe in contributing to my community. For two years I have been donating my time to teach theatre at а religious kindergarten in Tel-Aviv. in 2015, I have taught acting as a volunteer at the CEN8 Organisation in New Cross.
My method is mainly influenced by the work of Sanford Meisner. His believe in the “reality of doing”, the importance of the objective in each sequence, and what is the task to be accomplished.
This add up to his statement that the performer “lives truthfully under given imaginary circumstances”, hence, I highlight the tension between the performance actions and the performer’s mode on stage.
Together with the performer I encourage building an inner-monologue combined of images and sub-texts, to enrich and create an extra layer to the performance. This technique helps to build a frame work that allow us to develop an organic flow. The use of sub-text enables us to act truthfully, feel organic in the moment and react only to what is happening on stage.
I have a vast knowledge in theatre plays and I can offer my tutees a verity of texts to work with and be inspired by.
