Students who successfully completed and passed Acting Technique I of the Meisner Acting Course at the Actors Door Studio, can join the second stage, Acting Technique II (ATII).
Acting Technique II is a 24 week (approx. 6 month) course, taught over 3 terms. You can book and pay for the course in 3 instalments, on a term by term basis.
The focus of the second stage, is relationships.
“Relationships work, is key to developing three dimensional characters and to giving powerful, believable performances.”
Each week you will progressively learn how to develop compelling and truthful relationships so that the characters you play are as ‘real’ on stage and screen, as you are in your everyday life.
During this stage, you will also learn how to apply skills in relationship development to scene work and monologues.
Along with 2 x weekly Meisner classes, you will also attend one of the repetition classes to fine tune your rep skills, essential for all aspects of your work.
Preparation time outside of class is essential.
To progress to the next stage, Advanced Acting Technique, students need to successfully complete the core modules that are taught over ATII. In addition, you will attend an interview with staff to determine your eligibility for admission into the final stage of the course.
To join ATII you need to have successfully completed Acting Technique I at the Actors Door Studio. If you have completed Meisner training elsewhere that you think is equivalent and you think ATII is the appropriate level for you, please contact the studio to discuss if you have adequate knowledge, skills and experience to join this stage.
