Johanna's curator insight, April 6, 2014 1:38 AM

Take on the role of a play director while you read further about Stanislavski's methods in this Scoop. In groups of five, create a three minute play realistically portraying a family dinner that you imagine would have taken place when Stanislavski was an adolescent. 

 

During your performance of the skit in two weeks time, each of you will 'direct' another group, stopping them and asking them questions about the 'Magic If' and directing their use of Illusion. Formulate an actor's manual of ten 'Magic If' questions that you will pose to another character as you direct their performance, as well as five questions that an actor could ask themselves to perceive if their using Illusion efficiently.
