Offering Free Introductory Evening of

Meisner Technique

Led by

Sydney Moore

Veteran Chicago Actor, Meisner Instructor, and Director, Sydney Moore is offering a FREE one-night introduction to the Meisner technique.

Moore is a former faculty member of Act One Studios, (now disbanded), which was for years the Midwest’s largest commercial acting studio. She has created a program that is extremely close to Meisner’s program.

Sydney is one of a quickly shrinking group of second-generation Meisner instructors in the United States.

She has the experience and the edge of New York training, combined with the intricate knowledge of “ensemble acting” that is the breeding ground for the intensely personal and riveting performances so many of Chicago’s actors are noted for.

Location: State Theatre

(School of Acting Upstairs Studio)

719 Congress Ave, Austin, 78701

When: Thursday, December 4

Time:   7:00-9:00pm

Space Limited: Must RSVP!

Do not lose yourself in the past. Do not lose yourself in the future. Do not get caught in your anger, worries, or fears. Come back to the present moment, and touch life deeply. This is mindfulness.
