Intro to Meisner Technique
February 5-March 29, 2018
Taught by Erin Roberts
This class meets twice a week:
Fee $375 per student, Limited to 12 students. Students work every class.
An introduction to the Sanford Meisner approach to acting technique – sixteen acting classes are conducted in an eight-week session. In this class the actor works to learn and apply advanced acting principles through a step-by-step progression of exercises that develop his/her ability to work organically, and to create truthful and expressive behavior in acting. This workshop is for actors of all experience levels ages 18 and over.
Sanford Meisner defined acting as “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” Meisner Technique instills in actors the basic, essential skills of: listening, responding truthfully and spontaneously, committing to actions, using imagination to fully create and personalize a set of given circumstances, and identifying each individual’s personal emotional connection to those circumstances.
If invited to participate, a $100 deposit will be required to hold your place. The deposit is refundable if you cancel your registration one (2) weeks before the beginning of the first class. The balance is to be paid no later than January 23 and is non-refundable.
This class is meant to help the actor be inspired, connected and excited about their audition piece, and look forward to performing it!
During the 8-week class, a limited group of professional/professionally bound actors, will spend 5 classes discovering, workshopping, and perfecting new monologues. Using moment to moment work, and in-depth emotional preparation we will explore the essential and vital skills of a powerful, confident audition. In the remaining 3 classes we will address technical aspects of the audition process, (headshot, resume, introduction, beginning and ending, and timing when necessary), all while keeping the passionate and creative self present in the audition room. Industry guests will be invited to the final class so students will have an opportunity to apply their new skills under a realistic audition situation. Most importantly, this class will help shift the auditioning experience from anxiety and fear, to artistic fulfillment, appreciation, and fun!
