Acting and Reacting: Tools for the Modern Actor

Nick Moseley
 

As Head of Acting at a major drama school, Nick Moseley has developed a system that is based on the individual's need to find truth in everything they do, to be 'in the moment' and to react instinctively to the other people on stage. In this book, he takes the best of Stanislavski, David Mamet and Sanford Meisner to fuel his own intensely practical approach.

Actioning

and How to Do It

Nick Moseley
 

Actioning – and How to Do It is the indispensable companion to a vital component in every actor’s toolkit.

Actioning is one of the most widely used rehearsal techniques for actors. It helps bring clarity to every moment or thought in the text, energising rehearsals and bringing performances to life.

Actioning will enable you to discover and unlock newfound energy, range, variety and clarity of body and voice, by:

  • Interrogating the text and making initial action verb choices
  • Playing your chosen actions, both verbally and physically
  • Maintaining an imaginative and emotional connection with each moment
  • Signposting each thought to your scene partner

From the publishers of the internationally successful Actions: The Actors’ Thesaurus, this is the first in-depth exploration of Actioning for student actors, those who train them, and professionals working in the industry, whether they’re brand new to the technique or have been practising it for years.

This step-by-step guide draws on concepts from Stanislavsky, using sample scenes from classic plays such as The Seagull and The Importance of Being Earnest, as well as contemporary pieces, and is filled with exercises to demonstrate the technique at work.

Meisner in Practice: A Guide for Actors, Directors and Teachers

Nick Moseley
 

Sanford Meisner taught acting from the early 1930s until the 1990s, first at the Group Theatre in New York and subsequently at the Actors Studio and the Neighbourhood Playhouse. Derived from Stanislavsky, the Meisner Technique places emphasis on truthful interaction between actors rather than on dredging their own past to find a connection with their character. The aim is for the actor “to live truthfully under imaginary circumstances” – to remain truly “in the moment”.

Nick Moseley offers actors a step-by-step introduction to the salient features of the Meisner Technique and puts these to the test through a succession of practical exercises.
