In Stanislavskij’s method, emotions are produced through body actions, where the body is the custodian of the actions associated with emotions.

Abstract

In Stanislavskij’s method, emotions are produced through body actions, where the body is the custodian of the actions associated with emotions. This association could improve some aspects of personality. Everyone can feel themselves in an immediate way. Hence, an increased knowledge of emotions and thoughts can improve the relationship with others. In the current study, 74 boys and girls took part in a research to ascertain if participation to a workshop on Stanislavskij’s method can improve some personality aspects, according to the Big Five theory. The workshop was divided into two stages: (1) subjects were invited to tell a story with their body, sounds, and in narration; (2) discovering the places of Carloforte island. The final event was a personal rendering of the experience. The six-month experiment included three weekly meetings of three hours each. On the first day, the BFC was administered to each subject and re-administered on the last day of the experiment. Results showed that Energy, Friendship and Openness factors improve after the workshop. This can be explained by the Stanislavskij’s method enabling subjects to feel emotions and handle conflicts immediately through the body and the use of actions.
