Description

In this follow up to his most famous book, An Actor Prepares, Stanislavski develop his influential ‘system’ of acting by exploring the imaginative processes at the heart of the actor’s craft. Building a Character deals with the physical realisation of character on the stage through such tools as expressions, movement and speech. It is a book in which every theory is inextricably bound up with practice – a perfect handbook to the physical art of acting. The work of Stanislavski has inspired generations of actors and trainers and – available now in the Bloomsbury Revelations series to mark the 150th anniversary of Stanislavski’s birth – it remains an essential read for actors and directors at all stages of their careers.
