The Meisner technique is one of the most widely used American acting techniques exploring moment to moment emotional honesty and imagination. I studied the Meisner technique extensively during a comprehensive course at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago in 2005 and was lucky enough to be taught by Amy Morton, who was an original student of Meisner. I have been using this technique in my work as an actress ever since and it has become invaluable to me.
During the introductory workshop, we will focus on listening, following impulses, trusting your instincts and working closely with an acting partner. There are many in depth sections to the Meisner technique and this is an introduction which will hopefully whet the appetite.
