Description: The Meisner technique is about authenticity and the ability to “behave truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” The goal is to get actors out of their heads so that they may behave instinctively to their surrounding environment. This class will focus primarily on the repetition exercise, created by Meisner “to do away with words” so that actors might follow their instincts and communicate non-verbally rather than being trapped in their own heads. “If you want to reach every person in the audience, it’s not about being bigger, it’s about going deeper.” – Sanford Meisner
This class is perfect for new actors looking to try an acting class for the first time as well as seasoned actors who want to get more specific and thoughtful in their work.
