Meisner Technique for all levels
Sanford Meisner cultivated one of the best known approaches to acting. Meisner Technique is a collective series of training exercises that build on one another. Students work on a series of progressively complex exercises that develop an ability to:
- access an emotional life
- bring the spontaneity of improvisation and the richness of personal response to textual work.
“The only way to deal with yourself as an actor is to follow the emotional truth of what you have to do under the imaginary circumstances. And as you develop you become confident. You come to believe in what you’re doing and trust it because it’s out of you.”
– Sanford Meisner
