Acting: An Introduction To Stanislavski And The Method

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Tom McClane


Konstantin Stanislavski was one of the greatest living theatre practitioners who transformed the actors training from formulated cliché to inner process and emotional reality. His legacy still lives on today in the training of actors worldwide. Nowhere was this more prevalent than in America, where a group of visionaries took Stanislavski's work and developed what is now known as the 'Method', made famous by the Actor's Studio New York, which produced actors such as Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.

Topics covered

In this course you will be given the founding basis of the actors training.

Asking the questions of Who, What, When, Where and Why, you will be guided though a series of structured exercises and improvisations designed to release the imaginative and emotional world of the actor.

Over the ten weeks you will learn how to work on and by yourself using the most important tool that you have at your disposal: 'You'.
