Stanislavski: Two Day Intensive Workshop
Run by Elizabeth Moynihan (Actor and Writer)

We have a two day workshop available over two consecutive Saturdays

Date: Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th February for the more experienced actor.

Places are limited to 14 people.

The workshop is suitable for those who want instant knowledge of the Stanislavski Method without the trouble of having to plough through books – often with very bad translations.

Here you will get instant access as to what Stanislavski is all about.

The Method empowers actors to use their imagination, senses and emotions to create real performances that are founded in the ‘truth of the moment’. Lots of actors use this technique, like Julia Roberts, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper.

Stanislavski was a Russian actor, director, and teacher, and he co-founded the legendary Moscow Arts Theatre. He created  a ‘system’ for actors to use in rehearsals. This ‘system’ was to develop an understanding of the motivations, obstacles, and objectives of any character in every moment. All of these elements will be discussed.

You will be required to bring one/two film or theatre  monologues or duologues to the workshop and Elizabeth will work with you on them.

The feedback on previous workshops to Dublin Central School of Acting has been excellent.

Both workshops will cover:

  • Evolution of Stanislavski via The Actors Studio in New York.
  • The Classic Stanislavski Warm -Up.
  • The Magic If is a highly effective tool for actors. When an actor starts to ask themselves if questions about the character that they are playing, they can discover whole new elements that can be used anytime they approach the creation or rediscovery of a role
