Meisner Acting Intensive

Foundation and Opening

In the Meisner Acting Intensive we follow Sanford Meisner‘s traditional sequence of improvisational exercises and basic scene work, starting with the repetition exercise. Students gradually start to work with imaginary circumstances of their own devising and then deepen and expand the work over the course of six weeks. The work invites each actor to develop and explore themselves and their acting instruments. Students expand their self-awareness, sensitivities, and empathy. This lays the foundation for the work that is developed in the Two Year Conservatory.
