Oleg is a professionally trained actor, director, voice-over artist, and acting/dialogue coach. His credits range from films and television to radio and theatre. A native Russian, Oleg's work takes him across Europe and all over the world. His work is unique and draws equally from the three great masters of the Russian stage: Stanislavski, Meyerhold, and Vakhtangov. The latter is Oleg's greatest influence. Oleg has developed his own technique, style, and set of exercises, all of which encourage actors to be playful, to focus on imagination and justification, and to have artistic courage and strong physicality.
He continues to conduct research into the Vakhtangov traditions and techniques, experimenting with approaches and methodologies, and blending the new and the classic. His findings are well-regarded, and have resulted in innovative and engaging theatrical experiences. Oleg is based in London, where he is the artistic director of Belka Productions. He also teaches at Drama Centre London, a part of Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
