Method Acting


The Method trains actors to use their imagination, senses and emotions to create credible, authentic performances that are grounded in the ‘truth of the moment.’

Many people have heard the term and are aware that many successful actors from both stage and screen subscribe to this technique.

A brief history: Konstantin Stanislavsky a Russian actor, director, teacher and co-founder of the Moscow Arts Theatre developed what he called 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.

The Method was a development of Stanislavski’s system principally by Lee Strasberg who founded the Actors Studio in New York.

Using their own life experiences as a tool-kit to delve into, actors learn to recall emotional and physical memories safely and re-deploy them in the context of any given scene and to identify character objectives and relationships.
