ONE DAY WORKSHOP – Constantin Stanislavski

Stanislavski: A One Day Intensive Workshop Run By Elizabeth-Moynihan
(Actress And Writer)

This is suitable for actors who have some training and who want instant knowledge of the Stanislavski Method without the trouble of having to plough through books – often with quite bad translations.

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.
Elizabeth will also cover the following:

*The Classic Stanislavski Warm-Up
*Basic Stanislavski exercises.
*Loggerheads and the art of improvisation.
*Justification of an action.
*Room Re-Call.
*Portrait Exercises
*The Moment before …
*Inner monologues.
