Screen Acting – Intro to the Meisner Technique

Acting for the camera requires complete vulnerability and honesty, the actor needs to embrace the potential for failure and embarrassment in order to be believed.

In this intensive workshop, we introduce actors to the Meisner technique which will expose them to what Meisner describes as “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances”.
The workshop will focus on responding to honest impulses, owning your own opinion, listening to your scene partner and allowing yourself to be seen. We will cover a series of exercises and end off with a presentation of scenes in which the newly found skills will be applied.
