A TASTE OF IMPULSE - The Meisner Technique by Scott Williams
Sunday, 12 February 2012 from 10:00 to 16:00 (GMT)
A TASTE OF IMPULSEScott Williams will take you through an intense one-day course combining the Meisner Techniques for acting with the performance theories of the visionary director William Ball. You'll explore simple exercises which take the actor toward our definition of acting: "living truthfully under a given set of circumstances." These techniques have been popularised by such luminaries as Dianne Keaton, Robert Duvall, Sydney Pollack, and David Mamet.Williams studied with Meisner and Ball in the United States, and has developed their work with The Impulse Company, which he founded in 1996 and which now trains actors throughout the world. His work as a director has been seen from London's West End to Hong Kong to New York, and though he is based in London, he is overseeing The Impulse Company's expansion into regular training in Paris, Sydney, and Hong Kong.***This is recommended for Actors and Directors but anyone can attend and will learn something incredible***When?

When & Where
West Yorkshire Theatre Network
WEST YORKSHIRE THEATRE NETWORK:
- Offer, share and create opportunities for all people in or interested in the arts.
- Connect people within the arts from different backgrounds, ethnic groups, groups and ages.
- Close the gap between creatives and the public.
- Retain people in West Yorkshire.
- Enhance the cultural scene in West Yorkshire.
- Assist in people’s personal development and employability.
- Provide a package for accessibility to those in full time education, unemployment and benefits.
West Yorkshire Theatre Network is dedicated to connecting artists in Leeds and the surrounding areas who all have that one common bond: Theatre.
Networking is what the theatre industry is built on. You know the phrase, “It’s not what you know, but who you know”. However, our research proves that a high percentage of artists feel networking has negative connotations using such words as “daunting, false, pretentious, awkward and isolating”. This mindset can create barriers which we do not need: it prevents the theatre community from reaching its full potential.
What makes WYTN unique is its genuine passion for bringing people together - not profiles online and CVs, but personalities that bond, complement, enhance and in time, turn into mutual and reciprocal relationships.
