I thought it was very eye opening to start with such a “basic” exercise and then see how it builds into full scenes. Not only has it helped me with thinking about acting very differently, but learning the Meisner technique has given me a wonderful mindfulness/ grounding exercise all around.
I have often repeated the “acting is living truthfully in imaginary circumstances “ to myself, and find it a great reminder. I don’t have to “try and act” a certain way… just live and react truthfully. It’s been quite freeing.
I really enjoyed working with you. You are a very thoughtful teacher, your words aren’t wasted and I always really appreciated your prompt response times to emails and questions.
