Stephan Perdekamp has created something extraordinary, a method using only an actor’s bio-physiology. This is the acting technique for the 21st century – it would have amazed even Stanislavsky!“

Peter McAllister
Acting Teacher / Certified PEM Instructor, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

I’m very impressed by the techniques PEM has developed. Ultimately, the physical and the emotional are one.

Mike Alfreds
Director, London

At once new and revolutionary yet somehow timeless and familiar, PEM truly is a paradigm-shift and could well herald in the next major advance in actor training and performance possibility.
