Expertise, experience, passion.


Sharon is an internationally acclaimed expert and master teacher of Active Analysis—a radical rehearsal technique created by Stanislavsky and named by his protégé, Maria Knebel, whose influence was second only to his. Founder of the Stanislavsky Institute for the 21st Century, Sharon promotes Active Analysis as “a living legacy, because it fosters dynamic acting for today’s evolving forms of dramatic storytelling as surely as for the classics.”


“Sharon Carnicke has the rare gift of a deep scholar uncovering hidden truths and an insightful practical educator, who can lead actors to ways of incorporating those truths in their work. Her teachings have transformed my process as an educator, scholar, and practitioner. “

Joelle Ré Arp-Dunham, actor, Kansas State University

“Enthusiastic”, “generous”, “inspiring”, “deeply knowledgeable” and above all, “transformative” are words that Sharon’s students use to describe her teaching.

“Groundbreaking” and “accessible” as an author, Sharon combines experience in acting with “forensic skill” in research to speak to actors and scholars with equal authority.
