Meisner Technique


Fridays, May 1 – June 19
(8-week course)
6:00 – 8:00 pm
Prorated Tuition: $185

 

 

Meisner defines acting as “Living truthfully under imaginary circumstances”.  Learn action and reaction, the pinch and the ouch, and other techniques to connect an actor with the present moment on camera and onstage. This is an acting technique which can thrive in the webcam online environment and while learning and practicing remotely we will be focused on being present and “working off” each other. We will apply the technique to text by the end of the course. This quote by Agnes De Mille is a good sum up of our concentration in the class “Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what, next or how. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.” 

This course is taught by Joshua Waterstone.

We are in the process of scheduling another session of this course.

Explore how to both embody and attune to the psychology of a character in creating a role. This work cultivates physical awareness, a sense of play, and the courage to take risks! We will use improvisation, Stanislavski acting technique, script analysis and training of the tools of the actor: Body, Voice, imagination and Emotions. The course culminates in a virtual show and share. Whether you are new to acting or a seasoned performer, this is a safe place to explore and create!
