This three-day workshop introduces exercises, in a unique combination, from Sanford Meisner and Eric Morris, to help us expand our acting instrument and explore our work in new dimensions.
How can I use my emotions & behavior on stage?
How can I be truthful?
How can I bring reality onto the stage?
We first listen to ourselves in order to understand other characters. Then we will extend this, to listen to our partner, decor, accessories, and the space itself. We will investigate our own and our character's feelings, mindset, and behavior and turn our biases to our advantage.
Day 1: Basic Exercises, Exploring Ourselves, Instrumental Preparation
Day 2: Exploring Character, Preparing a Scene
Day 3: Living in a New Dimension
* Before the workshop, the participants will be given a short scene and the dialogue must be memorized.
** For newcomers & actors/actresses with pre-experience in the Meisner technique
Schedule: 11 am – 17 pm | 5 Days
Limited to: 12 Participants
Teaching language: Turkish & Englisch
