This method developed by Konstantin Stanislavsky helps to reveal the psychology of a character and the emotional life in a monologue or scene. While focusing on monologues from the works of Anton Chekhov, you will learn a contemporary approach to the Stanislavsky system designed to improve your ability to be in the moment on stage using your impulses, images and words. This method will help you build depth of character in an organic way, exploring psychological, physical and verbal actions in given circumstances. You will improve the effectiveness of your interactions with partners and break through the problems that block you in performance. You will work on a monologue given by the instructor and one of your own choice.
