MEISNER TECHNIQUE 1st, 2nd and 3rd Year PROGRAM
TBD September, 2014
The Meisner work expands an actors imagination – his or her greatest tool and grounds them in their partner which takes pressure off to “perform” allowing a performance to happen.
The workshop will teach actors: To explore his/her sense of truth . Learn what has meaning for them (for use in connecting to anything) How to think and craft like an artist; furthering the actors’ ability to create specifically and truthfully . This nine-month workshop focuses on an actor’s ability to listen, respond, and live truthfully in EVERY moment. It begins with the basic repetition exercise (the foundation of Sandy Meisner’s work that many have done in acting classes, but that most have never truly had the opportunity to explore). The exercises will build into intricate moment to moment scene work.
- Limit 20 Students
- $ 1995 for EACH nine month program (Payment plans available)

Each actor is in charge of his own “workout,” and is assured quality time and individual attention each class.
