Stanislavski: Physical Action
In the last years of his life, Stanislavski developed an approach to acting that synthesised the most useful parts of his previous systems: that of Physical Action.
This five-day course is based on his encouraging the actor to ‘trust the power of the simplest physical action’, uniting spontaneous truthful emotion with the natural energies of body and mind.
You will explore, through simple, practical exercises and scenes, how physical action can lead to the creative fusion of character and situation.

- Students should be prepared to present material in front of other participants.
