Before Meisner and Adler- Stanislavski Method

The Stanislavski Method of Acting was widely used in Europe long before it made the jump to the States, where it became something else in the hands of American drama teachers of note over the last century or so.  Many would say something more.

 

This workshop is rooted in original methods and intents of Method Acting before Americanized versions came about as taught in England and other countries to this day.

Devised and Improvised Theatre - A workshop for theatre educators and/or residency for students
