The Suzuki method of acting, developed by Tadashi Suzuki, is a physical approach to acting. The Suzuki Method works to build actors’ awareness of their body, especially their center. The method uses exercises that are inspired by Greek theater and martial arts and require great amounts of energy and concentration. The result is students becoming more aware of their natural expressiveness and committing more fully to the physical and emotional requirements of acting.
René’s classes tie the physical responsiveness of the Suzuki Method to the foundation work of the Meisner Technique (emotional responsiveness and ability to be present in-the-moment) to deepen students’ craft.
