Master It | Advancing Impulse

This workshop is the perfect next step for Actors familiar with the founding exercises of the Meisner Technique but seeking a deeper understanding of how this can influence your professional practice. 

You will discover how this technique transforms an actor’s work with text and how it can be used in a rehearsal room.

Previous experience with the technique is essential.



Do you want to get out of your head?

Are you looking for a reliable, practical acting technique?
Do you want to work with one of the World’s leading Meisner Technique teachers?

Then Scott Williams’ Master It series is what you’re looking for!

Sanford Meisner defined acting as “living truthfully under a given set of circumstances.” These workshops will delve into this concept, covering each of the exercises delivered in Impulse Company’s year-long training, from Repetition foundations through to text, all in an intense, joyous and transformative 6 days.

Please note: Advancing Impulse requires previous experience in the technique. If you are new to Meisner and Scott Williams, please begin with A Taste of Impulse.

Perfect for directors and writers. Develop your understanding of the Meisner Technique.
The cost to observe is $60 per day. Please call 02 6247 1223 to organise.
