»Your acting will not be good until it is only yours. That's true of music, acting, anything creative. You work until finally nobody is acting like you.« Sanford Meisner
First two weeks: 11 – 22 December
Third week: 8 – 12 January
Fourth week: 22 – 26 January
Mo-Fr: 12:30pm – 3:30pm
4 weeks Meisner Training including Alexander Technique
In the last level of the workshop you will not only work with a scene text, but also with the following: being conversational, understanding characters, specific circumstances, relationships and scene objectives. You will experience to work trough all the important questions like: What are the previous circumstances of the scene? What specific relationship does your character have with the other characters in the scene? What does your character want from his/her partner emotionally in the scene? What happens if your character does not get what he/she wants?
Working with text in the Meisner Technique, as in so many other techniques too, has a lot to do with asking questions and bringing yourself into the reality of the scene. All the exercises that you went trough in the previous weeks will inspire and feed your truthful, emotional and behavioral life. You will experience how it feels to go through a scene organically, fully invested and highly emotional but without negative tension, open and vulnerable, straight and clear.
You will experience that real acting feels like flying.
