Introduction to Stanislavski Lesson Bundle

This lesson is designed to last between 2-3 hours, depending on the amount of exploration time given per task. The lesson works through:

Theoretical background of Stanislavski
Three key Naturalistic techniques (theoretical introduction and practical exploration tasks): Emotion Memory; Given Circumstances; What If
A practical exploration task responding to an auditory stimulus
A devising task - creating a scene using Stanislavski’s techniques to deepen understanding of character
Students will also be briefly introduced to a short extract of ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’
