Beginning Programs

Meisner Technique 1

Meisner Technique for Actors focuses on putting together the fundamentals of a solid acting technique with a step-by-step approach to working on stage and screen.  Open, honest listening and responding is taught through a series of structured Meisner exercises to develop the beginning actor’s instincts and imagination and help to un-self-consciously bring a script to life. Building in confidence and trusting impulses, the actor allows truthful behavior to develop in a moment to moment progression of the exercises. These techniques are then applied to a scene from a produced play, allowing the actor to bring a role and the scene to life.

The exercises provide the foundation for improvisations that develop an understanding of character and relationship. Scenes are assigned, rehearsed, then filmed, with director adjustments, allowing students to see how their work translates on screen and how vital specific work is to the film medium.
