    Moscow Art Techniques? Please clarify

    Would one (or more) of you very intelligent Russians (and maybe artist type) please educate me and explain to me what the "Moscow Art Techniques" is/are as it relates to acting?

    I understand that it comes from "The Moscow Art Theater School"; however, I do not understand what makes this particular style of training or technique special or different.

    We are looking for an ensemble to create a showcase based on Moscow Art Techniques. Ensemble creation using the Moscow Art training techniques and Chekov's characters for a showcase production in early July 2009.

    Maybe it is a synonym to "Stanislavski's System" as far as "The Moscow Art Theatre" and "The Moscow Art Theater School" were founded by Stanislavski together with Nemirovich-Danchenko.

    Yes, I, too, think it's Stanislavsky's Art Techniques because there is no any Moscow Art Techniques or Moscow Art System. I think they say Moscow instead of Stanislavsky because it sounds shorter and easier to pronounce in English.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Coffee Cup & Оля…thanks for the info and the link too!

    I also found out that there are a few very competitive and rigorous exchange programs between some schools here in the U.S. and The Moscow Art Theater School. If my girls continue down their path, maybe…. they should take Russian in high school (if it is offered at the school they end up going to) even though the classes at MXAT are taught in English.
