An Introduction To The Meisner Technique

Get OUT of your head and INTO the moment

The Meisner Technique is a series of practical exercises which train us (actors) to focus attention on our scene partner and respond authentically, moment by moment, to their observed behaviour. Developed by American acting teacher Sanford Meisner in the mid-20th Century, the technique has become a widely recognised and respected approach to the actor’s craft.

In this practical workshop participants will familiarise themselves with Meisner’s Repetition exercises, fine tune their observation skills and begin to explore how the technique enables us to ‘live truthfully under given circumstances.’

This workshop is aimed at professional level and aspiring professional actors with some experience, as well as drama students and graduates; no previous knowledge of the Meisner Technique is necessary.
