Let’s talk about S

Who was Constantin Stanislavsky?

Constantin Stanislavski (1863-1938) was a Russian stage actor and director who developed the naturalistic performance technique known as the “Stanislavsky method,” commonly known as method acting.

Stanislavski strove to provide actors with a structure to consistently master deep, meaningful and disciplined performances. He believed that actors needed to inhabit authentic emotion while on stage and, that only by doing so, would they succeed at drawing upon feelings they’d experienced in their own lives. Stanislavski also developed a series of exercises that encouraged actors to explore character motivations, giving performances more depth.
