The Actors Centre

Meisner Workout

These classes are for those who have experience in the Meisner Technique. A chance to continue or refresh the work, whether as an occasional drop-in or a regular workout. The key Meisner exercise Repetition encourages a moment-to-moment capacity to listen/observe and respond authentically with an emphasis on staying firmly rooted in the present. Kate has been increasingly incorporating movement into her classes. The more embodied the actor, the easier it is to be present. In these regular sessions you will discover that being embodied enables us to listen fully to ourselves and the other actor, and to enter a state of flow in which spontaneous impulse and responsivity in the moment are unencumbered. Please note that this is no longer a drop-in class; please book before 12 noon on the day of the session. Participant Price: £22. Observer Price: £12. (Associate Members may participate in this workshop)
