Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An Actor Prepares is the first volume of Stanislavski's enduring trilogy on the art of acting. Fusing psychological realism and expressionism, his exploratory exercises teach actors to evoke past emotions that draw out their vulnerability. Stanislavski here introduces such concepts as the magic if, emotion memory, the unbroken line and many more now famous rehearsal aids. This classic manual is written from the viewpoint of fictional actors taking lessons from a director (based on Stanislavski). Through the student's mistakes, questions, revelations, and struggles, Stanislavski teaches the actor about the stage, truth, and life itself.

Synopsis:

Stanislavski's simple exercises fire the imagination, and help readers not only discover their own conception of reality but how to reproduce it as well.

Synopsis:

The first volume of Stanislavski's enduring trilogy on the art of acting defines the "System", a means of mastering the craft of acting and of stimulating the actor's individual creativeness and imagination.
