Really Listen & Truthfully Respond
Access & Trust Your Impulses
Heighten Your Instincts & Imagination
Are you ready to stop acting and start living your scenes?
The secret to good acting is to not act at all. Meisner Technique takes actors out of their heads and helps them focus on the other actor, responding instinctively and spontaneously in the moment. This course meets online twice a week -- perfect for actors just starting out who want an intensive experience or actors with training who want to bring more immediacy to their work.
Taught by Robert Verlaque (The Umbrella Academy, Star Trek: Discovery, Jessica Jones, Reign, Indignation, Boardwalk Empire, Suits), this course starts with repetition and incrementally adds more complex exercises that culminate in moment-to-moment scene work. The goal is for the actor to work unselfconsciously and truthfully with ease, trusting the impulse of the moment. Outside rehearsals with a scene partner are required.
