Towards truthfulness - an emotion-based acting technique for rope, 03.09.2023, Anatomie Studio London
Sanford Meisner was one of the most influential and respected acting teachers of the 20th century. His technique emphasises instincts and spontaneity as well as acting out of the truthfulness of the moment. We feel that this can be of great use in our rope practice and adapted his most iconic exercise for Shibari. In this one-day workshop we’ll introduce exercises inspired by the Meisner technique which will help to achieve greater emotional freedom and versatility, as well as training the participants to stay emotionally connected to each other.
This workshop is open to all levels.
