Acting on Impulse: Reclaiming the Stanislavski Approach: A Practical Workbook for Actors (Methuen Drama)

Acting on Impulse: Reclaiming the Stanislavski Approach: A Practical Workbook for Actors (Methuen Drama) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I'd recommend this book to anyone wanting an introduction to Stanislavksi or Chekhov or acting in general.”—Matt Peover, trainer and theater director, London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art

An inspiring and technically thorough practical book for actors that sets down a systematic and coherent process for organic (from the “inside-out”/experienced emotion) acting. The author offers a step-by-step, Stanislavski-based approach to text, role, and performance to be used in everyday work and gathers together in one volume the essential tools that serve to re-create human experience. John Gillett builds on his experience of teaching at drama school level as well as thirty years of acting. For those acting students and professional actors who have become mystified and frustrated with trying to understand Stanislavski's approach, this book is an accessible guide to inspire a truly real and audience-captivating performance.

Synopsis:

Contains all the important things that need to be said about learning to act.
