Einstein said it: Everything is constantly evolving. So why are we still teaching acting classes as if nothing has changed in the last 70 years? At Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop acting school in Cape Town, the long-held illusions that continue to keep actors in the dark about their creative process are being shattered. IT’S REVOLUTIONARY. It’s what you always knew Cape Town acting school could be: FUN, EASY, EMPOWERING.
NO substitutions, sense memory, becoming an animal (“I think I’m a dog. No, I think I’m a snake!”). NO repetition exercises or 8 hours of scene rehearsals with your partner who’d rather be at the beach. NO memorization (“Learn those lines, dammit!”), drilling objectives or imbuing objects with personal meaning (“This coffee cup reminds me of rainbows.”). It’s just you being your great self. Refreshing, huh? So how does it work? Come watch us work. It’s free and fun!
This 6-week Cape Town acting class meets twice a week: one working class and one lecture/observation class. The course introduces actors to the fundamentals of the AMAW philosophy and our way of working. A major shift takes place during this period – faster and more tangible than any other acting program.
After graduating from the Foundations Course, actors are evaluated by their instructor and placed in one of three Phase Levels for ongoing, month-to-month instruction. At every level you will be challenged to explore story more deeply and discover more of who you are as an actor, creator, and human being.
Actors have mastered the fundamentals of the AMAW philosophy; they are producing professional level work in an environment which is provocative, instinctual, community-oriented and “ego-free”.
