chapter  4
38 Pages


The exercises in this chapter fall into three basic categories: Introduction to ‘round-the-table analysis’ and Stanislavsky’s ‘system’; Introduction to the Method of Physical Actions; and Introduction to Active Analysis. The first section is a mixture of devised exercises and some of Stanislavsky’s own, while the second and third sections begin by analysing Stanislavsky’s rehearsal practices to try and piece together some practical strategies.
