Our Method Acting Classes are all about The Method, which trains actors to use their imagination, senses, and emotions to create credible, authentic performances that are grounded in the ‘truth of the moment.’ Many successful actors from both stage and screen subscribe to this technique and training such as Daniel Day Lewis, Robert De Niro, Christian Bale, Kate Winslet and Bradley Cooper to name a few.
Konstantin Stanislavsky is also approached during these sessions. Konstantin Stanislavsky a Russian actor, director, teacher, and co-founder of the Moscow Arts Theatre developed what he called a ‘system’ for actors to use in rehearsals. This ‘system’ was to develop an understanding of the motivations, obstacles, and objectives of any character in every moment.
The Method was a development of Stanislavski’s 'system' principally by Lee Strasberg who foundedthe Actors Studio in New York.
