Meisner and Stanislavski for Improv:
‘Acting is Reacting’ – ground your scenes in truth by making the essential calls and accessing emotion memory as required. Learn what Meisner Technique is, and apply the rehearsal technique in shows by reading the sub-text we, our voice, physicality and use of space are always communicating. Master the truth your own body, voice and proxemics communicate by applying the parts of the Stanislavski system that you have time to in spontaneous improv (where there’s no time for thorough research and 36 questions etc)
This is a workshop for actors wanting to apply their acting skills to their improv, creating nuance and subtext; and Directors wanting to help their improv casts find more emotional truth in Dramatic/Theatrical Improv shows. A basic understanding of stage-craft and a willingness to be vulnerably truthful are essential – this is not a comedy workshop.
