In this 1 day introduction course, participants will gain practical experience and insight into key aspects of Sanford Meisner’s Technique.
Acting Coach Peter Carroll trained in The Meisner Technique at The Acting Studio, New York City, with International specialist James Price.
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.
This course is suitable for both beginners as well as experienced actors and other creatives.
