Meisner Styles


Class Description
Exclusive study of 3rd level Meisner – a specialized program expressly focused on applying the Meisner work to classical text – Shakespeare, Greek drama, Molière, Wilde, Chekov, Ibsen, Strindberg, etc.

The structure of the class will involve classical reading and text analysis, evolving into scene work and monologues / soliloquies, along with some period style work. We will focus on the “actors inner state of being” and the moments in between, and crafting of multi-layered details in order to create a deeper, richer and more fascinating character.

Physical movement and perdio style work will be studied and incoporated into the final piece.

This course is 6 hours per week for 10 weeks.

PrerequisiteOnly offered to actors who have taken the full 2 years of Meisner training. Final determination of acceptance will be made after a personal interview regarding depth of training in the technique and a possible audition.
If you have not trained at the Studio you are still invited to join Meisner Styles.
