A masterclass with Peter Carroll
During this one day introduction course, participants will gain practical experience and insight into key aspects of Sanford Meisner’s Technique.
This Meisner workshop will focus on the practical application and understanding of key approaches and techniques to secure performance and stage truth.
The Meisner Technique is a distinct approach towards personal preparation and performance creation. It’s about how we connect with fellow actors to create organic, believable and engaging choices. It's about using who you are and acknowledging that the voice has meaning.
Some understanding of the core principles of Stanislavski’s system or method may be useful but is not essential.
