Meisner technique (developed by Sanford Meisner) is considered one of the most influential, exciting approaches to modern acting training and is taught in drama schools the world over.
The training invigorates an actor’s impulses, stimulates concentration and engages the performer to work truthfully under imaginary circumstances. A progression of specifically designed exercises to focus on confidence, strengthening personal presence and the ability to create a real connection with instincts.
In Meisner Technique there is no sense of "designing" a performance. As an actor you turn your focus to the other performers. This encourages you out of your own head completely, and frees up your instincts for a more truthful performance.
