wP.E.M. Workshop

P.E.M. Workshop

“I’m very impressed by the techniques PEM has developed. Ultimately, the physical and the emotional are one” – Mike Alfreds, Award-winning theatre director and teacher, London

PEM is a revolutionary and scientifically supported acting method to repeatedly and authentically access and express emotions easily, with depth and unheard simplicity.

The Workshop

In this 4 day workshop, actors have a comprehensive experience of PEM’s biological acting method.

Actors learn how to access emotions without recourse to their personal and past experience. There is a difference between emotions, which have a biological imperative and psychological feelings, which are the result of supressed emotion.

PEM teaches actors, that just as human beings develop from a child-like state of openness and freedom which has been obstructed by circumstance, conditioning, societal pressure and suppressed emotion, so to have the characters they create and play.

Actors will learn how to apply trigger points, giving them safe and immediate access to six core emotions which live in the body.

Presence is inevitable in actors when they are fully engaged emotionally and energetically with their environment and each other.

16th Street is delighted to present two PEM Workshops in Melbourne and in Sydney, March 2017.

“PEM is the acting technique for the twenty-first century – it would have amazed even Stanislavsky!”
