The famous Meisner Technique as it is taught at the Neighbourhood Playhouse in New York, whose alumni include Robert Duvall, Sidney Pollack and David Mamet. A practical workshop for actors and directors exploring ways of finding truthfulness, freedom and a genuine responsiveness to your partner. This off-shoot of Stanislavsky's method, created by Sanford Meisner, uses three basic exercises to get at the core definition of acting: 'acting is living truthfully under a given set of circumstances'.

The workshop will explore core Meisner exercises and how it is applied to text. This is the third workshop that Scott has lead for Living Pictures. They are always taught with humour, are challenging and practised in a safe environment.
