THE MEISNER TECHNIQUE
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 and respond to their scene partner and draw out their own impulses.
This workshop will offer a practical overview of the technique and work towards greater truth in your acting.
No previous experience or knowledge of this work is necessary, just curiosity!
This workshop will suit actors both amateur and professional who are looking to develop their creative practice.
Tuesday, 7th September, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
£12 per person (£13.52 including booking fee)
