No-one has had a greater influence on acting as we know it than Stanislavski. His system-or interpretation of it ? has become the central force determining almost every performance we see on stage or screen. His teaching is principally set out in three famous books, An Actor Prepares, Building a Character and Creating a Role. It is still the only comprehensive theory of acting we possess.
In An Actor Prepares Stanislavski deals with the inward preparation an actor must undergo in order to explore the role to its full. He introduces the concepts of the 'magic of', of units and objectives, of emotion memory, of the super-objective and many more now famous rehearsal aids.
