Fundamental acting techniques will be used further - Stanislavsky, Grotowski, Meisner, Adler and Linklater.

Stanislavsky

The Stanislavski method or system is a set of techniques used by actors to portray emotions on stage by putting themselves in the place of the character.

Grotowski

Jerzy Grotowski and his small groups of actors were known for experimenting with many different aspects of theatre: spiritualistic, ritualistic and physical and also the nature of role and the relationship between actor and spectator. His acting system is probably the most complete approach to role since Stanislavski.

Meisner

The technique teaches the actor to think less, react to stimuli and get in touch with their instincts and emotions. Meisner noted that you should ‘Act before you think – your instincts are more honest than your thoughts.

Adler

First and foremost, Adler believed that actors should be independent, creative, well-rounded beings with their own personal points of view and their own unique, strong choices. She also strongly advocated for the use of imagination (vs. personal life experience/emotional recall) to bring the text to life on stage.

Linklater

Linklater Voice Work releases the physical, psychological, and emotional blocks that inhibit the free, direct, and embodied communication necessary to an artist’s full range of expression.
