Intro to The Meisner Approach for Improv

Taught By Andrew Gallant, of Chicago's Green Shirt Studio and the DePaul University Theatre School

Sunday, October 15



Learn "the reality of doing" from Sanford Meisner’s groundbreaking techniques taught by certified expert Andrew Gallant, when he visits Planet Ant Oct. 15.

Meisner's exercises are a perfect complement to improv.  Stop thinking. Start doing. Be a better improviser and get trained to react without the hindrance of thought. Learn to “live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.”

Meisner's innovative, step-by-step series of improvisational exercises will train you to be thoroughly responsive, emotionally alive, spontaneous and absolutely grounded in the reality of what is happening at any given moment with any given person. These foundational exercises will get you out of your head and into being absolutely present to the world around you and the people you share it with.

$50 (Space limited to 20 students)
