“Every actor should subscribe to your Meisner workshops” ~ Nicci Topping

The technique works progressively through a set of specific exercises which are designed to hone an actor’s ability to listen, respond truthfully, be emotionally available and be receptive to given circumstances and direction. It enables an actor to be less self-conscious and extend their acting range.
Many of the industry’s most gifted actors and writers have trained in and value the technique including: Jeff Bridges, Anthony Hopkins, Kathy Bates, David Mamet and the late Arthur Miller, Philip Seymour Hoffman & James Gandolfini.
Our Introduction establishes the first few exercises of the technique, gives a basic overview of our training and how it can benefit an actor’s craft on stage and screen.
The Core covers the full set of exercises, taking actors all the way through to text work.
After that we run regular classes & masterclasses.
NB Professional actors (and those actively pursuing a career in acting) only.
