"I just wanted to thank you again for letting me be a part of such a fantastic workshop. I feel like I made some great personal growth in the two days I got to work with you. Your class is awesome. You have a fantastic, nurturing, incredibly effective approach in teaching the Meisner technique that creates an safe and comfortable environment where everyone from the beginner to the more experienced student can feel free to take big swings, and really go for it. I can't wait to check out the improv classes. I look forward to working with you again, and I've recommended you to all of my friends back at school." Robert DiDomenico
Little Green Pig and The Flying Machine Studio are joining forces this January to offer a unique acting course--24 hours over three consecutive weekends--designed to give students both a solid introduction to The Meisner Approach as well as real acting tools they can use now. Anyone who hungers to bring more truth and power to their performances, regardless of their experience level, will find this work highly valuable.
No previous acting experience necessary. All experience levels are welcome.
Instructors: Dana Marks and J Chachula
Dana will bring her extensive training in physical warm-ups, exercises, and games to ready bodies and minds for Meisner work. J will introduce Meisner's famous Repetition Exercise, a unique game designed to leave you present, open, and responsive to your partner. From there you will explore your own unique point of view through improvisational exercises based on personal meaning. You will dig deep into your imaginations and discover what it means to tap into your emotional life and use it to make a role your own!
There is no text work in this workshop, and nothing to memorize. There will be some “homework” to do, however, to help every student get the most out of the course.
The course will likely challenge you as few acting classes have, and if you’re willing to give the work your fullest attention, you’ll begin to develop the skills that bring intensely human performances to the stage or screen.
Full 3-Weekend Course: $480
First Weekend Only Option: $160
January 12-13 at Cardinal Gibbons High Schools, Raleigh
