This fascinating and dynamic Seminar/Demonstration is focused on the work of the man who revolutionized the art of acting. 

Our speaker, Sharon Marie Carnicke will explore the value of taking a fresh look at Stanislavski’s last, most innovative rehearsal technique, Active Analysis. She will be joined by Theatre West members for a demonstration focused on the topic.

An Introduction to our Speaker

SHARON MARIE CARNICKE--author of Dynamic Acting through Active Analysis and Stanislavsky in Focus--is an award-winning expert on Stanislavsky’s System and an internationally acclaimed acting teacher.
