Credits: 1

Analysis Through Action is an introduction to a powerful methodology for actors, directors, and theater makers alike, developed from Stanislavski’s final experiments. The technique employs études: a unique rehearsal tool that sources performers individual impulses as a framework for text analysis. Students will learn how to mine a text for all known given circumstances and explore them in an embodied way, building a visceral connection to the world of the play. They’ll also investigate the many unanswered questions of the text - zeroing in on those that excite their imaginations and pique their artistic curiosity - and begin to personalize them through études. The method gives students practical tools to pull even the most intimidating texts off their pedestals and make them their own.
