Meisner Intensive

June 22 - July 31

This 6-week online course will transfer our premier in-person class to the intimate setting of the zoom classroom. This is a rigorous program that meets 3 times a week and requires full commitment from it’s students.   Remaining faithful to our traditional Meisner Technique process students will focus on:

  • The ability to really listen and respond
  • Shedding defense mechanisms and self-censorship that suppresses truthful behavior
  • Developing a unique point of view and an actor’s voice
  • Creating the ability to focus and live truthfully in an imaginary moment
  • An approach to text that keeps actors connected and emotionally alive

In some ways online training has some distinct advantages, particularly when we are training with film and television as one of your goals. Viewing yourself through the frame of the screen helps you understand the importance of truthful behavior, listening skills, honest emotion and real connection.   The intimacy of camera work can lead to deep self-discovery, and a real feeling of community.
