“With consummate expertise, meticulous scholarship, and innovative pedagogy, Sharon Carnicke reveals in clear, practical terms how Active Analysis works and how to apply it.”
“Dr. Carnicke’s written words ignite the same creative passion in my mind as does a curtain call on opening night!”
“Sharon gives voice to many things that I have been thinking about but have been unable to articulate until now.”
“Sharon’s character, wit, and spirit are as true off-stage as they are on it.”
“Carnicke presents a fresh approach to acting and directing in any style of theatre or film.”
“Sharon’s work has completely transformed my teaching and directing.”
Sharon's process has given me a sustainable structure that balances unfettered imagination and exploration with focus and specificity. I now have freedom to be confident and authentic as actor, storyteller, and human.
Deeply inspirational and profoundly scholarly, Carnicke created the paradigmatic shift in the way that we understand Stanislavsky today. She explores previously unknown territories of the System and reimagines Stanislavsky for the wider contexts of the 21st century.
The importance of Carnicke's work is incommensurable. Her research extends beyond Stanislavsky, through the work of his students, notably Maria Knebel and the development of Active Analysis.
Sharon is everything one would need in an acting teacher. Smart, concise, and caring, but most of all she is clear.
