What the Acting Lab is all about…

We will bring together the principles of Sandford Meisner’s Acting Technique and Uta Hagen’s Approach to Acting, to integrate the two techniques and explore how they compliment one another. By doing this we aim to give all participating actors the knowledge, toolkit and experience to deepen their own creative work within theatre, film, TV and all other platforms.
