Based in Dublin, Momentum Acting Studio has been running workshops from the Back Loft since March 2014. This is the only acting studio in Ireland to provide full Meisner Technique training.
Good and powerful acting is not a matter of talent but precise work respecting your sense of truth and nurtured by artistic passion. With the help of specific exercises (repetition exercise, independent activity, knock on the door, improvisations, etc…), this practical step by step approach gives you the ability to live truthfully & instinctively with your fellow actors before adding imaginary circumstances (text, relationship, time, place, twists, impediments, etc.)
The Meisner Technique frees you from social habits & inhibitions to reveal your unique real self and re-enter the explorative playfulness & creativity of acting. It expands your acting range & abilities in a believable & truthful way whilst freeing your emotional expression and strengthening your imagination. No need to dwell into past traumatic events to get a real emotional response: You interact in the moment with your fellow actor. This technique helps you create a bridge in between you & the requirement of any dramatic piece that you can, not only understand but also instinctively portray in your unique way.
To train and expand your abilities as an actor, Momentum Acting Studio provides :
