Suitable for GCSE and A-Level Students

Stanislavski is fundamental to the core training of any student of acting. More often than not his methods have been contaminated with false information and misinterpretation. It is a responsibility of any teacher, director or facilitator to re evaluate the fundamental principles of his methods – tried and tested to then clean up and deliver practical exercises that are true to his essence.

Stanislavski In Training – It All Starts With Imagination is a tailor made package of exercises which are directly related to Stanislavski’s ‘The Actor Prepares’. ‘The Actor Prepares’ is the start point in his journey to prepare the actor for professional performances – beginning with the actor them self, their state of being and all the fundamental attributes and skills needed to then move on to building a character.

Within these exercises your students will discover where they are as a potential artist in the journey through to performance. The tailor made workshops move in a linear order- building from one exercise to the next.

Each workshop can specialize on 3 or 4 aspects of Stanislavski’s methods or it can introduce a wide selection of the practical exercises. Suitable for GCSE and A-Level students.

The Stanislavski workshops have been developed by Victoria May a regular university lecturer in the Great Practitioners techniques, a freelance director and actress. Throughout her career Victoria has found many performing arts students have a limited knowledge of Stanislavski’s methods and this has led to the development of these workshops in conjunction with Scripts To Stage to establish a better understanding of the great practitioners for young performers.

The workshops all follow a core structure but are specifically tailored towards GCSE or A-Level learners. Victoria has developed exercises to achieve the results Stanislavski writes of in his 4 core texts. These tried and tested techniques help nurture a full understanding of Stanislavski’s system. The most powerful aspect of this practical work is – does it produce results? Acting is play and is meant to be fun as well as challenging – through these workshops the results are there for all to achieve.

The training can also be tailored to suit CPD teacher training. Please contact us for further details.
