There is still time to register for two 40-hour, face-to-face group courses to be held at the Bravo! Theatre in Riberas del Pilar, November 9 to 20 and November 14 to 23.
The courses are led by Jo Romero, who employs the techniques developed by Sanford Meisner. The main objective of the method is to develop the actor’s instinct and responsiveness while performing. Meisner believed that when actors “get out of their heads” they bring a new layer of realism to their performances.
The groups will be limited to 14 to 16 people. No experience is required but students will be matched by experience level.
