The technique of Sanford Meisner and in general the methodology of the “Theater Group” had (and has) the objective of creating the conditions for working on acting in a fair, loyal way, without tricks or found, reacting to impulses and developing the sense of true in every scenic moment. The work of Meisner and the other pedagogues of the group (Kazan, Strasberg, Lewis, S. Adler, L. Adler, B. Lewis, H. Clurman) wants to reunite the actor to his emotional impulses and lead him to a work rooted in his more intimate and instinctive part. That part linked not to the mind but to the heart. “In addition, the Sanford Meisner technique gives an impressive listening and action-reaction training, and a solid training to tackle and support the work on the texts with creativity.”
Acting means listening carefully and reacting in a genuine, true way. In other words, to truly live in imaginary circumstances. For this reason, this method favors access to the real impulses and emotions that the actor lives in the moment: “instinct does not think, instinct reacts”. This technique is applied in improvisation, in the interpretation of a text and in the specific creation of the character.
The work is divided into:
We will work fundamentally on the practice of repetition, which is the basis of the technique, and on the stage relationship that can also be applied to theatrical improvisation.
