Transcript of Stanislavski System
They would draw upon feelings they had experienced in their own lives. 'Stanislavski Method' In June 1897 in Russia, Stanislavski and successful author-producer Nemirovich Danchenko decided to merge their acting companies and form the Moscow Art Theatre (MAT). In 1898 the MAV produced Seagull. Was a mediocre success, but became the precursor of reforms in actor training, leading to Stanislavski’s famed ‘inner technique.’ MAT actors were initially resistant but eventually agreed to apply some of Stanislavski’s techniques to their performances.
Stanislavski therefore formed the First Studio in 1911, which became a laboratory for his new experiments. An Outline of the Stanislavski System Relaxation. Learning to relax the muscles and eliminate physical tension while performing. Concentration. Learning to think like an actor and to respond to one's own imagination. Work with the senses.

Learning to divide the role into sensible units that can be worked on individually, and developing the ability to define each unit of the role by an active goal (objective) desired by the character. Logic and believability. Discovering how to be certain that the combined objectives are consistent and coherent, and that they are in line with the play as a whole. Work with the text. Developing the ability to uncover the social, political, and artistic meaning of the text, and seeing that these ideas are contained within the performance. The creative state of mind.
