Stanislavski in Practice – The Film (Part One) brings the Stanislavski System fully to life for the first time, with over 100 minutes of footage. The film follows a group of seven acting students as they are introduced to the System. Guided by Nick O’Brien, the students undertake a complete course in the System, including:
- Physical tensions
- Free body
- Natural silences
- Movement and awareness
Each area is explored practically and clearly, with exercises based on those used by Stanislavski in Moscow. As a close companion to O’Brien’s book for school students, Stanislavski in Practice, this DVD focusses on each student’s process of observing, experiencing and learning, as well as on the teacher’s instruction. It provides an invaluable alternative or supplement to reading the book and practicing the exercises in class, in a workshop or at home.
As a step-by-step guide to working with Stanislavski’s System, this is an unparalleled package of resources for anyone looking to become a better actor.
