Stanislavski System

The Stanislavski system was created   by Constantine Stanislavski in the early 20th century. Stanislavski created this method because he was tired of the unrealistic style of acting that is ‘Melodrama’. An additional thing that Stanislavski found to really annoy him seing theatre were actors who performed for themselves not as an ensemble.   A famous quote from one Constantine Stanislavski was “there are no small parts, only small actors”.
To have a performance that accurately displays the methods of the Stanislavski system and to “create theatre of living experience” you need to ask the fundamental questions.   The fundamental questions that I used while preparing this scene where. Who Am I? What time is it? Where Am I? What are the given circumstances? What is my objective in this scene? And what is my super objective? Here are some examples of my fundamental questions and answers.
Who Am I? I am Rosalind daughter of Duke Senior.   In this play I dress up as a man and go by the name of Ganymede.   I do all of this so I can teach Orlando how to be a proper husband for me.
What time is it? The time period in which this play was set was the 16th century. When this scene ends it is 12 noon. I know this exactly because it is stated in the last minute of the scene.
What is my objective in this scene? I believe my objective in this scene is to is to have a little fun with Orlando, play with his mind a "Am I not your Rosalind" like really I look like a man he has believed be to be Ganymede can I really be his Rosalind.
Where Am I? I am in the forest of Aredenne a fictional forest that Shakespeare created it is meant to be a forest in France.

Stanislavski also wrote about using emotional and muscular memory to put you into the role and play it believably. An example of emotional memory is if you were playing a character for example Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream who was dissatisfied with her looks and wanted to be like Hermia, you may remember a time...
