This pioneering introduction to Stanislavsky's methods and modes of actor training covers all of the essential elements of his System. Recreating ‘truthful’ behaviour in the artificial environment, awareness and observation, psychophysical work, given circumstances, visualization and imagination, and active analysis are all introduced and explored.

  • Each section of the book is accompanied by individual and group exercises, forming a full course of study in the foundations of modern acting.
  • A glossary explains the key terms and concepts that are central to Stanislavsky’s thinking at a glance.
  • The book’s companion website is full of downloadable worksheets and resources for teachers and students.

Experiencing Stanislavsky Today is enhanced by contemporary findings in psychology, neuroscience, anatomy and physiology that illuminate the human processes important to actors, such as voice and speech, creativity, mind-body connection, the process and the production of emotions on cue. It is the definitive first step for anyone encountering Stanislavsky’s work, from acting students exploring his methods for the first time, to directors looking for effective rehearsal tools and teachers mapping out degree classes.

Review:

"An excellent acting textbook for any instructor aiming to provide a thorough overview of the System.  Its wealth of references to other performance practices as well as its solid foundation in the latest scientific research offers an excellent blend of traditional and contemporary acting theory and practice."

  • Theatre Library Association

"This is an incredible book. A wonderful comprehensive examination of the subject and powerful exercises to work the acting theory."

  • Robert Yowell, Northern Arizona University, USA

"The book offers an extensive collection of Stanislavskian techniques, extending them in a way that is accessible to the classroom. It makes convincingly the case that Stanislavskian techniques still have relevance to the training of contemporary actors."

  • Konstantinos Thomaidis, University of Portsmouth, UK

"A wonderful compilation of historical perspective and creative explorations. Expertly defines and explains Stanislavsky's approach and impact on actor training."

  • Shawn J. Clerkin, Gannon University, USA

"Fantastic discussion of body, voice, mind, and spirit as they pertain to acting technique."

  • Leah Roy, Wake Forest University, USA

"Provides a deep and respectful understanding of the basic principles and working methods of Stanislavsky."

  • Kirsten Due Kjeldsen, VIA University College, Denmark
