Stanislavski Theatre Workshop

Constantin Stanislavski was a Russian actor and playwright best known for his acting ‘system’ – a framework for actors developed through his book An Actor Prepares. Stanislavski’s system is well-known around the world and has influenced many actors and theatre practitioners since. The techniques and exercises found in this framework can be witnessed in many modern approaches by actors and directors today, especially in the film industry.

Participants will gain a basic understanding of Stanislavski and his techniques.  The workshop highlights some of the key techniques from his system covering ‘emotion memory’, ‘the method’, physical action, motivation and objectives and the ‘magic if’.  These techniques are introduced through a progression of practical exercises to help participants get to grips with Stanislavski’s techniques and create their own work using these approaches.
