The Meisner Technique
Wednesday 20 March, 7.30 -9.30pm
Based on the principle “what happens to you as an actor depends on what the other person makes you do”, this technique offers a sequence of exercises which pull actors into the present moment, enable them to truly observe their fellow actors and draw out their own impulses. This workshop will offer a practical overview of the technique and work towards greater truth in your acting.
