The Miesner Sessions

The Miesner Sessions

Tue 12th, 19th, 26th

7pm - 9pm

£10

Sanford Meisner was a founder member of the Group Theatre, New York. In 1931 Lee Strasbourg, Harold Clurman and Cheryl Crawford chose 28 actors, one of whom was Meisner, to from the Group Theatre; it still has a profound impact on American theatre today.

The Meisner Session’s Drop-In class is a place for people to explore the Meisner Technique through practice and observation of others. The nature of the technique is such, that it is about personal development, and does not require one's partners to be working on a similar level. Thus, it is open to anyone interested in the technique and is aimed at all comers, whether new, or experienced, professional actor, or otherwise.

The goal of the group is to improve each members acting skills and this is done through activities that are based around Meisner's repetition exercise. The focus of each session will differ, but tutors are usually able to adapt their classes around the needs of the students.
