Fundamentals of the Meisner Technique | Acting Workshop | Los Angeles | March 21, 2020

Fundamentals of the Meisner Technique - 2 Day Acting Workshop

Los Angeles


Fundamentals of the Meisner Technique


In this workshop, actors will learn authentic and valuable exercises created by Sanford Meisner. This workshop will be incorporating beginning exercises with advanced techniques, facilitating the actor’s ability to work from their gut and react truthfully off of their partner. This is beneficial for any actor looking to sharpen their skills, with or without previous Meisner experience. This workshop will teach techniques to hone the craft further while correcting issues that may inhibit the actor’s ability to “live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”

Space is minimal, so if you’re interested in this workshop, register before the available spots fill up!
