STANISLAVSKI’S APPROACH TO ACTING Constantin Stanislavski’s approach 1888 at the age of 25 he established the Society of Art and literature in 1897 the Moscow Art Theatre provided him an opportunity to work as a professional. 1897 joined with Nemirovich- Danchenko to “reconstruct theatre’s whole life…to change, at the root the whole order of rehearsals and the preparation of plays.” Stanislavski began his career as a professional director and actor. The artistic work of their company-the Moscow Art Theatre brought the ideas of realism -experiencing life on stage-to Russia and new standards of acting to the world. 1912 established the First Studio to develop his System 1923-24 Moscow Art Theatre toured USA STANISLAVSKI The System is based on his belief that mind and body represent a psychophysical continuum. He said” In every physical action there is something psychological and in the psychological something physical.” Hi system values an actor’s capacity to treat fictional circumstances as if real, to visualize the details of a character’s world specifically and to daydream or fantasize about the events of the play. Main ideas --performance demands a supreme state of dynamic physical relaxation. He looked to yoga and other Eastern practices to develop exercises for achieving that active state of relaxation and focus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
