Constantin Stanislavski (1863-1938), arguably the most influential director in the history of the theater, was the founder of the renowned Moscow Art Theater. A pioneer of psychological realism and improvisation on the stage, he devoted his life to developing the performance techniques now emulated throughout the world.
An Actor Preparesby Constantin Stanislavski
Stanislavski's "System" offers both a means of mastering the craft of acting and of stimulating the actor's individual creativeness and imagination. Generations of actors have been inspired by his ideas -- the "magic if," "emotional memory," the "unbroken line" -- and by that hallmark of Stanislavski's work, an unwavering commitment to theatrical truth.
