Meisner – Week 3

We are three weeks into the Meisner class. Our focus is exclusively on the repetition exercise and will be for several more weeks. While I suppose that it may begin to feel redundant, I am still enjoying the challenge of it. My biggest challenges are letting myself alone and letting the exercise go where it wants to go, especially when I am unsure about what I am getting from my partner. My natural instinct is to begin to lead the exercise. I think some of this comes from years of training to pursue an objective, and frankly I’m usually not aware that I am doing it until it is pointed out. I’m sure that this will come in handy later on, but for now just allowing myself to be led by the exercise is the challenge. Loving the class though. As I told Jolene, I feel kind of lost right now but in a good way.
