This four day workshop is designed to give the participants an overview over the Concepts of famous US – Acting Teacher Sanford Meisner in his Meisner Technique.
The Meisner Technique is a systematic approach to train actors, to truly listen and react upon impulse, rather than waiting for text cues. It will change the way you behave on stage and in your work. Through applying the technique, a deep contact between you and others will be established. The result is not another standardized performance, but truthful, authentic moments, which make your performance unique. Instead of playing a part and exchanging lines, you “are” the character and you are having a human dialogue based upon your own truth.
The workshop will cover the foundation of the technique which is the exercise “Repetition” and it will also add exercises such as “Knock at the door” and “Independent Activity”.
The Meisner Technique is suitable for actors working in Theatre, Improvisation or in Film / TV.
