Method Acting: Just method, no madness.
This ongoing course will concentrate on the fundamentals of Method Acting, Using techniques developed by Konstantin Stanislavsky, Lee Strasbourg, Stella Adler, Uta Hagen and others. It will also look at hybrids and offshoots of the method such as that developed by Sanford Meisner.
The Method is a powerful tool that was designed to bring realism to acting. It marked a shift from a very “presentational” style of acting to an authentic style. But some of the older techniques can also be valuable and many of today’s best actors use a combination of “schools” to develop deeper characters. This class will examine how to create true characters that resonate with audiences and industry professionals.
Be prepared to work, and to have fun. In preparation for this class, please read An Actor Prepares by Stanislavsky. Although some things have changed, it is still a good primer on Method. Uta Hagen’s Respect for Acting is also excellent. (These books should be on every actor’s bookshelf.)
