Tamur Tohver

I have accumulated practical, academic, leadership and artistic experiences over 40 years in the fields of Performing Art as a Director, an Actor and an Educator-Trainer. My expertise lies in theatre, Radio and TV directing and acting (over 80 productions in several styles) and teaching, self-development coaching and yogic practices. I am a motivational leader with advanced supervisory. I step easily into roles and make needed positive changes to drive project success. Therefore, I am focused on using training, monitoring and morale-building techniques to maximise team members' engagement and performance in every field of my activities.

Perceptual bodymind practices, grounded on both practical and academic knowledge and personal experience, have led me through exciting and challenging times in my life. I am pleased to share the top of the iceberg of these, accumulated in primary practices I live, improve, and develop daily. As our body is our temple, keeping it balanced and well-maintained is the foundation for an inspiring and fulfilling life.

Directing- a new book!

``Directing!`` This is a fresh perspective on contemporary stage directing craft according to nowadays demands and societal understandings. The book gives light to the classical Stanislavskian directing, enriched with my practical experiences from over eighty productions in thirty years with actors from different cultures and nationalities. The reader can find a unique approach with the adjustments connected to online directing, teamwork, actor coaching and the director's personal development. It is written in straightforward language, avoiding too much professional terminology or specific jargon to be easily understood by a person outside of the field.
