Suitable for theatre studies students, young actors, as well as those with interest in theatre history and modern acting techniques. This course gives a more in-depth introduction and understanding of one of the most popular acting systems in the world, which was developed by Constantin Stanislavski over a century ago in Russia and led to the famous Method acting approach. This grew popular in the USA in the 1930s and heavily influenced acting in film (e.g. Dustin Hoffman, Marlon Brando) and theatre in the West from that point onwards. Students will explore both the theory of the system and practical acting techniques to help them to understand Stanislavski's legacy and the scope of his system in a practical, authentic and understandable way.
