The Actors Gateway Meisner classes in Putney, with Bryan Oliver

Bryan Oliver Meisner teacherI have over 15 years experience of the Meisner technique and have spent many more years working as an actor, writer and director.

I offer a space where actors can experiment, explore, dare and triumph. I will nurture and inspire you to develop at your own individual pace, giving the time and devotion for you to truly absorb and implement this incredible technique.

I teach Sanford Meisner Repetition, Independent Activity, Knock, Emotional Preparation, Improvisation, Spoon Rivers, in-depth Scene Work and more.

  • Meisner said that acting is “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances”.

I will teach you to access and develop the art of truly listening, absorbing and reacting - in the moment, organically and under imaginary circumstances.

To get rid of self-judgment, to silence that critical voice inside that can sabotage. This technique can free you as an actor AND a human being. Suitable for actors who are Meisner beginners and actors who want to brush up on their Meisner.

Some past Actors Gateway student testimonials:
Meisner class has made a profound difference to my career. Within a few weeks of starting class, I was shooting a series called Crossing Lines with William Fichtner. It has also made a huge difference to my experience of casting interviews. I don’t get nervous anymore and am fully present throughout the whole process. My hit rate since starting Meisner dramatically improved; I get far more offers than I used to. (William Brand)

  • The most challenging, daring and insightful experience of the week. (Laura Simm)

Bryan's teaching is heartfelt and welcoming, guiding you through both the technique and the emotional experience. Here you can fully embrace who you are. Once you trust and embrace the technique, you cease to act and begin to truthfully live in imaginary circumstance. (Mike Archer)

  • Meisner is an awakening and has transformed my acting making it more truthful, alive and in the moment than I could have ever imagined. (Chloe Hayward)

This has 'changed my life', this has 'blown my mind' and when the time is right and when I'm ready I will have 'the greatest tools an actor can have". (Simon Wan)

Taster Class
Actors are invited to do a taster class to see if the class work is right for them. They can then become regular class members. In the taster class, actors are taken through some of the Meisner exercises and will also get to work with more experienced class members.

  • Taster class is £30 for a five- hour session. (Normal class is £37) Classes start back Thursday 13 April from 10.30- 3.30 at The Community Church, Werter Road, Putney.

To get there: Waterloo Overground to Putney. (15 minute journey) Turn right out of Putney Overground Station and Werter Road is second street on the right. Community Church is in Werter Road on the left. (about a 3 min walk from the station) Or Putney Bridge tube and then over Putney Bridge and up the High Street.
