Draws attention to the truthfulness of a piece.

Jocelyn Prah

I liked how interactive it was from the very beginning. The coaches were both very open with responding to questions and clear about what they wanted to teach and share. I really enjoyed it. I see how Meisner can draw attention to the truthfulness of a piece and getting me to actually consider the conditions and the choices I make.

Given me ammunition in my acting skills

Julie Cheung

I enjoyed the structure of the workshop, ie: learning repetition and the 4 conditions in stages. It felt like a really good progression. It's given me ammunition in my acting to tackle monologues and other general acting skills. I liked the opportunity to not only participate, but watch others too- very helpful for learning too! I liked Siu-see and Evie's teaching style. Most importantly, it's given me the techniques for approaching texts and reminded me how acting is all about the other person. Ironically both the simplest and hardest thing to do!

Really connecting with your character’s emotions is one of the biggest challenges actors experience. Most actors have come off stage at some point, disappointed that they were incapable of truly connecting with their character and giving a truthful, emotionally authentic performance.

Over the course of the Masterclass, we’ll introduce you to a number of techniques, taken from leading acting forms, and use them to show you new ways to become a more truthful, responsive actor.
