Text Analysis

Based on Meisner’s own text analysis system and then David Mamet’s system of Practical Aesthetics, you will be immersed in Gaby Santinelli’s clever and dynamic blending of the two. Using intellect to be simple, not complicated, and your emotions, this system is fool proof.

You will learn how to convert text, seemingly complex and full of options, into readings and performances that are strong, emotionally true, and dynamic.  You will also learn how to prepare yourself emotionally for a scene using your imagination.

These skills are instantly applicable to any text that may get thrown at you; your ability to prepare for sight reading, auditions and rehearsals will grown ten-fold.

Cost: £245 (Earlybird discount price £190, available up to 3 weeks before the start date)

Please Note: This forms part of a continuous course, broken up into stages allowing for practice between modules and to give students the opportunity to work as they learn. Each stage is based on Meisner's own systematic approach of actor training, therefore the courses need to be taken sequentially.  There is flexibility for Text Analysis, which may be taken anytime between Meisner Stage 1 and the beginning of Meisner Stage 3.

All participants must have completed Meisner Stage 1: Introduction and be invited by Dominic to continue the training.
No restrictions on age, gender or background. English to a conversation level.

The course has been specifically designed to be taken on the given dates, but should you be unable to continue with a module, you are able to practice your skills in Meisner Drop-in classes until a further chance to take the module can be made available.
