Stanislavski conceived of a system. Sanford Meisner shaped it into a teachable approach. Robert Patterson has developed it into a complete craft. It is not a “technique” from a year of basic exercises and a year of character work, after which a student applies his bag of tricks for life; it is acting as a complete craft, learned as one continuous action. Classes offer a complete way of working that allows actors to make strong, specific choices, and improvise fully in any given set of imaginary circumstances. Introductory class and 28-month course. Classical, contemporary.
