Abstract:   (1968 Views)
The world of cinema has put more emphasis on Sergei M. Eisenstein’s theories about montage, and that’s why his approaches in acting were ignored. Experienced set designing and directing under the direct supervision of Meyerhold’s Biomechanics theory in Moscow’s theater, Eisenstein observed many structural and administrative similarities between acting in German cinema and the works of his contemporary Constructivists in the Soviet. Similarities such as a set of theatrical techniques encompassing exaggeration, actor’s muscular violence, separation of body movements and movement around the vimineous body organs which lacked play value suntil then, and on the other hand, a series of choreographic and spectacular movements as gymnastic style,fitness show-off and aggressive capers which were belonged to sport fields and were brought on the theater stage. 
By concentrating on Eisenstein’s works, this research deals with the process of Russifying German Expressionist acting and cinematizing Russian theater acting as a preliminary of such acting which was considered as realistic models of acting in Hollywood. Also, this paper deduces that Eisenstein’s inspiration from German acting established an integrated approach which is less considered in cinematic studies.
