Synopsis

Stanislavsky and Female Actors Women in Stanislavsky's Life and Art by Maria Ignatieva

Stanislavsky and Female Actors is the exploration of Stanislavsky's artistic and personal relationship with the leading actresses of the Moscow Art Theatre. It seeks to portray their life-long artistic dialogue and offers a new biographical study of the previously unknown spheres of Stanislavsky's life, as well as the lives of the Moscow Art Theatre's principal actresses.

Reviews

Ignatieva's research has been published in leading journals and shared through international conferences. It is scrupulously documented, informed through her network of contacts among leading Russian theatre artists, and of great import to theatre history. Her book, Stanislavsky and Female Actors, contains a wealth of information on Stanislavsky's working relationships with both seasoned performers and students. It will open up new avenues for understanding his foundational approach to acting by looking at its application by women. -- Sharon M. Carnicke, Professor of Theatre and Slavic Studies, Associate Dean, Theatre Ignatieva dedicates her book to the analysis of Stanislavsky's collaborations with female actors and their Life in Art. There are fewer and fewer studies being published in Russia and worldwide about acting, as if the world forgets that theatre can exist without all other theatre practitioners, but not without actors. Stanislavsky remembered it, and Ignatieva's book reminds us about it once again. Like My Life in Art, Ignatieva's book is published in the United States
