Konstantin Stanislavski

Stanislavski, Konstantin (Konstantin Sergeyevich Alekseyev; 1863–1938), Russian-born stage director, teacher, and author. Stanislavski and Vladmir Nemirovich-Danchencko founded the Moscow Art Theater (1898); they used a new acting technique called the method, in which actors drew upon personal experiences to bring out the emotions of the characters they portrayed. This technique, outlined in Stanislavski's book An Actor Prepares (1926), is often used by actors today.
