Stanislavski’s Ultimate Acting Technique

(An introduction to Stanislavski’s greatest discovery!)

Presented by

Beowulf Alley Theatre Company and Philip Bennett

Although the name of Stanislavski has dominated theatrical methodology for nearly a century, many misunderstandings, assumptions and distortions have taken place. In the United States Stanislavski has been identified with Strasberg’s Method Acting and psychological realism. The “Cold War” and “Iron Curtain” prevented Stanislavski’s greatest Ultimate Acting Technique from reaching the West for decades. In Russia, the Marxist Revisionists censored nearly 50% of the System’s basis in Buddhism and Raja Yoga, subjugating the Master’s teachings to the materialistic designs of the Soviet State.

Philip G. Bennett has been an actor, director and instructor of Stanislavski’s Ultimate Technique of Physical Actions for forty years. He was protégé to the world famous Russian émigré actress, director and teacher, Sonia Moore (author of The Stanislavski System, and Stanislavski Revealed). As Assistant Artistic Director to Ms. Moore and the American Stanislavski Theatre in New York, he trained and directed actors for AST’s professional theatre company. Mr. Bennett founded the San Francisco Theatre Academy, the Bennett TheatreLab and has trained and worked with directors and instructors of the Royal Shakespeare Company, including Peter Brook. He is a three-time recipient of the prestigious Hollywood Dramalogue Award and numerous other honors and awards for his work.
