The Reality Of Doing

An Introduction To The Meisner Technique 

The Meisner Technique is a series of practical exercises which train us (actors) to focus attention on our scene partner and respond impulsively – moment by moment – to their observed behaviour. Developed by American acting teacher Sanford Meisner in the mid-20th Century, the technique is now a widely recognized 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.

Workshop Timings

Totalling 6 hours, this workshop will be delivered over two afternoons (Sat 22 and Sun 23) from 2.30 – 5.30pm. Your £30 ticket covers both afternoon sessions. 

Venue: Drama Studio, Exeter Phoenix
