Description - An Actor Survives: Remarks on Stanislavsky by Tomasz Kubikowski

This book focuses on the analysis and interpretation of the first volume of the book An Actor’s Work by Konstantin Stanislavsky.

This volume is the only part of his planned major work on theatre art that he was able to finish and authorise before his death. Its highly edited variant has long been known as ‘An Actor Prepares’ in the English-speaking world. Tomasz Kubikowski explores Stanislavsky’s material not only as a handbook of acting but also as a philosophical testament of Stanislavsky, in which he attempts to contain his most essential experiences and reflections. This book explores the underlying theme of ‘survival’ in its various meanings, from professional to existential; and the mechanisms and actions we attempt to survive.

This study will be of great interest to students and scholars in theatre and performance studies.
