The Stanislavski Method
Acting Techniques – the Stanislavski Technique
One of the acting techniques we teach at the Michelle Danner Acting School is the Stanislavski method, which is a set of techniques used by actors. This method can be used to portray emotions on stage by putting themselves in the place of the character. In other words he believed in naturalistic performances that were as realistic as possible. Stanislavski also invented techniques that you can use to improve your acting skills as well as to better understand the character.
The Stanislavski method acting consists of seven steps. This technique was developed to help actors to build believable characters in answering the following questions:
- Who Am I?
- Where Am I?
- When Is It?
- What Do I Want?
- Why Do I Want It?
- How Will I Get It?
- What Do I Need To Overcome?
The Stanislavski system is one of a range of methods that our drama school teaches; learning it will undoubtedly help you as an actor perform in a more convincing manner by giving yourself techniques to help you understand the role you are playing. By recreating the thoughts that your character is having, you will produce realistic emotions and expressions that are appropriate to the scene you are acting out at the time. After all an Actors job, is to be believable in unbelievable settings/surroundings!
