The Method Actor’s Training Centre is the only acting school we know of in South Africa that specializes in Method Acting. The Method acting course is based on the techniques developed by Lee Strasberg, who was one of the pioneers in the USA who brought about the real, believable acting methods we know today. He based his techniques on the results obtained by the great Russian director, teacher and actor, Constantin Stanislavsky, throughout a lifetime of research and experimentation.

Unlike the usual drama training obtainable in South Africa, The Method trains actors to experience sense memory (sight, sound, touch, taste, smell and overall sensation) and express the response freely and fully in order to give a truthful, real performance time after time. Actors learn how to employ sensory recall and emotional memory in order to recreate situations, relationships and emotions from their own lives truthfully. This enables them to express real emotion as the character, rather than indicating a response by pushing for an end-result. Method Acting is a process that develops over a three- to four-year period of time.
