The Studios

Modeled on the laboratories in which Stanislavsky developed his System, each Studio teaches Active Analysis and investigates an issue or technique of importance to contemporary acting.


  • Sessions are conducted by Sharon Marie Carnicke.
  • Studios meet weekly, generally on Monday evenings, in the LA area.
  • Members are selected by interview and audition.
  • Auditions for the Studios are held periodically during the year. Contact us to learn about upcoming audition opportunities.


No one other than Sharon teaches Active Analysis in the United States with full authority. Fluent in Russian and experienced as a director and actor, Sharon learned Stanislavsky’s methods in Moscow from transcripts of his last classes, from his assistant Maria Knebel, and from other prominent Russian masters, who personally worked with him and Knebel.
