Created by Kostantin Stanivslaskij (approach-method) and later explored by Lee Strasberg (method) this technique is based on the authenticity of the interpretation and its goal is to solve the main problems of the actor, because the spectator canít believe you if youíre not true. I always fought the bad idea that the Method is, because of its minimalism, a kind of movie acting, I believe that the first rule of an actor is the naturalness and the ability to communicate feelings without words, same thing for the theatre...
...My various experiences with my teachers Marceau, Tatž Strasberg, my mime and actress years, taught me that to communicate true feelings body an soul interact. Very often actor has an approximate formation, if for a musician, a dancer or a singer itís necessary keep training, itís not for an actor and the easiness to embrace this job doesnít always protect the skills. My teacher Strasberg used to say: "Actor is like an instrument and as an instrument it has to be tuned"".
