Melbourne 2018 Meisner Modular Course Dates.
The Meisner Technique essentially trains you to live truthfully, moment to moment in a state of aliveness. What actor doesn’t want to be able to call on that with ease and freedom?
In Melbourne we currently run modular, 8 week blocks of training. Each of the modules is designed to build on the previous foundations, therefor Modules 2 & 3 are by invitation. If you are completely new to the technique, you need to start with Module 1. If you have previously trained in the technique, please get in touch to discuss the best options for you.
Meisner Module 1, 8 weeks: Living Truthfully.
This is the starting point for people new to the technique. Living Truthfully covers our basic, Meisner-rooted Technique, giving you a deep and experiential grounding in its analysis and exercises, focusing on the foundation exercises – those which bring you into ‘the moment.’

Meisner Module 2, 8 weeks: The Given Set of Circumstances.
The Given Set of Circumstances takes the Technique forward to work with ‘the givens’ of performance. This includes “investing in the realities of doing” – the heart of any actor’s work. This module will cover the independent activity and preparation aspects of the technique.
