Culture & Arts Management
4 days, 11:00-16:00

Theater Masterclass with Andreas Manolikakis, former Chairman of the Actors Studio Drama School Master of Fine Arts Program (Pace University, New York City), on “Textual Analysis”  


The intensive theater seminar helps those involved in theatrical theory and practice to discover information that will help them make the most appropriate choices between and underneath the words a play consists of.


This work focuses on understanding and developing all elements inherent in the plot and characters, with particular emphasis on the reality of each individual moment of the play.

Andreas Manolikakis is teaching this masterclass based on the Stanislavski system and the Actors Studio method. Excerpts from classic and contemporary plays will be analyzed. The master class also traces the development of the Stanislavski System from its roots to the present and includes special exercises, which bring participants in contact with their own, personal material.

The organization of the teaching was impeccable, the division between theory and practice was right and the topics were extremely interesting. Mr. Manolikakis kept our interest undiminished, with courtesy, immediacy, humor, inexhaustible knowledge of the subject and an effective pedagogical method.

The analysis of the scenes was revealing, it brought the text to life in a truly impressive way, literally revealing a new perspective of the text. A valuable experience that I intend to use immediately, in the best possible way.

Mr. Manolikakis shared with us his love of theater, his knowledge of the methods of textual analysis, his vast experience of the obstacles and difficulties in our art and he personally inspired me to re-dream of the stage.
