Want to enhance performances in your production, but don’t have the luxury of time for extensive Meisner training?


Directing Arts offers coaching in its methods, on the following bases:


• One-to-one coaching for actors in preparation for auditions, including scene analysis, and effective methods for auditioning.


• One-to-one coaching for actors in production.


• Tailor-made workshops for theatre groups wanting to work with Meisner’s methods in rehearsal, to create a heightened ensemble dynamic.


• Full Meisner consultancy on feature films for both directors and actors (including script and scene analysis, rehearsal strategies, off-filmset coaching).


In addition to being well-versed in ‘Meisner’ strategies for performance,

both Stephen Bayly (Richard III) and Maria Gowland (Central Station) have years of practical film experience, and understand the pressures and time-constraints of production.  Idalmis Garcia has worked as acting coach – among other productions -- for the recent films of director Ernesto Daranas, with many of Cuba’s leading actors.


Coaching can be delivered in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
