2-DAY WORKSHOP

Perdekamp Emotional Method (PEM)

WITH BUDI MILLER

The Perdekamp Emotional Method PEM – developed and designed by German director and playwright Stephan Perdekamp – is an innovative acting method based on a biological process. 

What can I learn from the workshop?

PEM provides performers with direct, effortless and guidable access to authentic emotions on a purely physical basis, without recourse to personal experiences or emotional memory. PEM was created to take care of the actor and their well-being. It is also a 'comprehensive acting method’ where all disciplines of acting training (bodywork, breathing, voice, speech, character work, emotional work, scene work, improvisation,  acrobatics, dance, singing, stunt) are based on the same technical principles.  In this 6-hour introduction workshop, participants will learn the bio-electric process unique to PEM, including how to access the six basic emotions defined within the PEM methodology: aggression, happiness, grief, lust, fear and revulsion. Participants will be taught simple and effective exercises for each emotion that work to overcome personal restrictions and emotional blockages, granting more artistic freedom.
