WHERE: Young & Hungry rehearsal rooms, Level 4, Anvil House, Wakefield Street, Wellington

TUTOR: Debra Mulholland
In the 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, and with the imaginary circumstances of the moment encouraging the actor’s own impulses. The goal of all work is to condition the actor to live by the maxim: “what I do depends on what he/she does.” And, “ it doesn’t matter who is watching you as long as you’re not watching yourself.”
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 emerging director a chance to exercise the notions, the techniques, and the tools they need to get the actor to perform at their peak.
