MEISNER TECHNIQUE – AN INTRODUCTION for Actors and Directors
With Debra Mulholland
“Acting is behaving truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” Sandford Meisner
“I believe in the importance of a comprehensive acting training – with voice and movement included – in order to develop the total instrument” Deb Mulholland
In this two-day workshop, actors will build the core Meisner repetition exercises a step at a time, and explore the practices of the Meisner approach with a focus on creating and living believably.
The art of communicating with actors is the most powerful advantage a director can have, and it may be the most neglected skill in today’s director skill set. This class is a solid practice, giving the director a chance to exercise the notions, the techniques, and the tools they need to get the actor to perform at their peak.
Debra Mulholland is an actor, teacher, director, and prolific practitioner of theatre and film, who has worked in all forms of the industry for more than 35 years.
She established a highly respected international acting studio in Amsterdam, “The Mulholland Academy”, which is renowned for its passionate and committed community of students and teachers, who come together from around the world to study.
