The Actors Centre

Method Introduction

WHAT IS IT? A two-day course introducing the structure and techniques of Lee Strasberg's methodology, commonly known as Method. HOW WILL IT WORK? Day One will start with a talk and discussion about the structure of Method as part of the actors craft. We will work through first and second technical exercises (basic relaxation and sense memory) with break down and feedback. On Day Two we will move on to Scene Work. Through the use of a simple scene, the techniques learned on day one are brought into play with the scene and character. We will investigate tools and techniques within the actor’s approach, and through working on the text we will break down how and when such techniques and tools come into play. We will also consider the specific habits that you may confront when trying to unlock the greater potential of your work. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? A full introduction and understanding of Method on a practical level with a selection of tools and techniques to take away and practice. You will have the means to expand your methodology by bringing into play particular tools of Lee Strasberg which address Relaxation/Sense Memory/Emotional Memory. Price £60
