What you'll learn in this meisner class:

Authenticity is an essential tool for any actor, but one especially necessary when you work in Chicago. Meisner Technique teaches the actor how to live in the moment and to respond truly, deeply, spontaneously. It is not for the faint-of-heart - Meisner Technique is an emotionally demanding series of interdependent exercises designed to get you out of your head and into your honest and instinctive responses.

This introductory course will cover in depth the fundamental building block of the Technique - the Repetition Exercise. We focus on intense partner work and a firm grounding of the skills needed to bring a greater level of connection and honest reactions to your acting. There is no scenework, but the course will require at least two hours a week with a partner outside of class.

To ensure everyone in this class gets a chance to do their work, space will be limited to no more than ten students.  Don't hesitate, reserve your spot today!
