Ioan Ardelean attended the University of Arts Targu-Mures-Romania, where he received his Ph.D. in Acting. He has trained with Babes-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca in Romania, Theater Dimitri in Switzerland and SITI Company in New York. His accolades include the Debut Award at Contemporary Theatre Festival-Brasov-Romania and nomination for The Best Actor at Hop Festival-Costinesti-Romania. His formal training and versatile style is ideally suited for dramatic roles as well as Commedia dell' Arte characters.
He has assembled an extensive list of stage, commercial and film credits. His repertoire includes Shakespearean productions and modern plays at The National Theatre in Cluj-Napoca-Romania, The Almeida Theatre in London and several Off-Broadway productions in New York City. Among his favorite roles are Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet, Khlestakov in The Governor Inspector, Tormod in More and Samuel Beckett in The Last Godot. Ioan Ardelean has taught acting voice and speech at Pace University, New York, University of Arts Targu-Mures, Mihai Eminescu College, Satu-Mare and Ion Slavici College, Satu-Mare. He developed The Constructing Permanent Present a workshop which he conducts in USA and Europe.
Having observed Ioan Ardelean introduce a class of college freshman acting students to the Suzuki method, I can vouch that his calm, clear, simple way of connecting to the students, his exacting attention to detail, his physical flexibility and control, and his ability to do everything he describes are all truly impressive. I found myself watching to the students—they were mesmerized with concentration. -Thomas Keith-
