Meisner's Repetition Workshop
5 Sessions Every Sunday 3 Hours
Repetition’s purpose is to emphasize spontaneity and greater listening between actors, and to shift the actor’s attention away from their own self-consciousness and onto the other actor in the exercise.

There are several objectives that the Repetition Exercise seeks to achieve. Chief among these is to increase the actor’s reliance on their instincts, or to get actors “out of their heads”, as Meisner would say. Secondly, the exercise shifts the actor’s focus onto the actor with whom they are working. The actor, then, doesn’t have the ability to dwell on their own self-consciousness, because they are busy focusing on the other actor.

Lastly, the Repetition Exercise reduces the importance of the words that will, eventually, come from a script. The back and forth repetition of the words trains the actor to make words less relevant. The focus, instead, shifts to acting and reacting spontaneously to what the actor’s scene partner is doing in-the-moment.
