The Meisner Technique is a series of exercises  designed to focus your attention on your playing partner. Meisner’s intention  was to shift your focus from yourself and simultaneously put you in the present moment. Later, another set of exercises help you to understand what it means to live in the given circumstances provided by the text and your director. Finally a further set of techniques ( cold reading, text analysis etc  ) will help you to  make organic discoveries about the texts you have to play  and and also  just what those  given circumstances are. 

La technique Meisner est une série d’exercices conçus pour focaliser l’attention sur votre partenaire de jeu. L’intention de Meisner était de transférer l’attention sur l’autre, en vous ancrant simultanément dans le moment présent. Plus tard, il y ajouta un autre ensemble d’exercices visant à aider l’acteur à comprendre le ressenti de circonstances données procurées par le texte et par son metteur en scène. Enfin, une série de techniques complémentaires (lectures à froid, analyses de texte, etc.) permettent de redécouvrir les textes à jouer ainsi que les circonstances que vous êtes supposé(e) transmettre à un niveau quasi organique.
