PEM Workshop for Actors

A unique acting methodology based on biological proces

PEM – discovered and developed by German director and playwright Stephan Perdekamp – provides performers with a direct, effortless and guidable access to authentic emotions, independent from personal experiences or memories. It identifies precise biological points responsible for emotions and how to generate emotions by stressing or contracting those areas.

The former is a tedious and uncertain method whereas the latter – PEM’s modern, biological and fast approach – grants security, flexibility and reliability in an actor’s career. PEM works with an unheard-of simplicity and effectiveness in creating emotional depth and expressiveness.

PEM’s emotion technique is officially part of the curriculum on the prestigious BA Acting Course at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London as well as the BA (Hons) Performance Degree at Southampton Solent University. PEM masterclasses have been taught worldwide, including the University of Cluj (Romania), the University of Johannesburg (South Africa) and many classes in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Amsterdam, The Hague, Hamburg and Munich.

This PEM workshop will benefit:

  • Teach the Actor to access true, powerful emotions biologically without using    psychological manipulation, personal experience of tapping into trauma
  • Clear emotional block from the actors instrument without going into story
  • Hone the actors craft through intensifying and deepening work with character, text and    emotion with clarity and specificity
  • Help the character to connect safely and truly to others and so create instant chemistry   and relationship
  • Remind the actor that acting is Fun and Liberating

PEM Workshop for Teachers, Coaches and Therapists

An Innovative and Revolutionary Method Of Emotional Communication Based On Biological Process

Background:
Initially, PEM – discovered and developed by German director and playwright Stephan Perdekamp – provided actors and performers with a direct, effortless and guidable access to authentic emotions, independent from personal experiences or memories. It identified precise biological points (storehouses of emotions) responsible for emotions and how to generate emotions by exercising control over those biological areas. PEM works with an unheard-of simplicity and effectiveness in creating emotional depth and expressiveness from within the regions of the body.

 

Teachers and communication
As the PEM evolved, it identified the need to train teachers who are constantly communicating with impressionable minds and sending emotional signals wittingly or unwittingly to their students. In the process,PEM distinguishes three levels of human communication as a basis for its process:

  1. The Intellect – serves the purpose of communicating and processing (=understanding) abstract and cognitive occurrences
  2. The Body – is responsible for unconscious reactions and reflexes
  3. Emotions – defined as innate holistic muscular movement (action) patterns which are distinguished by their function and direction

Although a lot has changed in the cultural conception of man, until recently in the western cultures the intellect (as the sole seat of our self) has been communicatively overrated, the body has been regarded as completely subordinate to the intellect and emotions have been defined as disruptive opposition to the mind.

Due to this unequal emphasis in favour of the intellect, the lack of emotional techniques and support in the field of communication becomes clear and allegeable. The negative effects of a society that communicates exclusively on a rational basis become more and more apparent and ask for a new understanding of man, culture and communication.

 

Methodology
As per the PEM research, all three levels (intellect, body and emotion) must be acknowledged, practiced and equally utilised to ensure holistic (therefore authentic) communication. Only by combining all three levels can authentic communication be reached.

And an authentic communication is the key to teaching: With emotional clarity, information becomes tangeable and will be registered holistically.

As explained in the case of training actors, PEM uses a similar methodology to train teachers to identify the three levels of communication, utilise them effectively and ensure meaningful, powerful and authentic communication with students and their guardians, alike.

 

Utilisation
Where PEM has been applied beyond the Arts

  1. PEM has been used in German schools to improve the communication among students with different backgrounds.
  2. PEM was used in prisons in Germany and the UK to help inmates understand and better deal with emotions in order to rehabilitate them.
  3. PEM has worked with Aspergers patients to help them better understand and communicate emotions
  4. PEM was introduced to the National Council of Hypnotherapy – a part of the Royal Society of Medicine in the UK – where it was met with great appreciation and excitement.

PEM Workshop for Parents

Parents and communication

As the PEM evolved, it identified the need to train Parents who are constantly communicating with impressionable minds and sending emotional signals wittingly or unwittingly to their Children. In the process,PEM distinguishes three levels of human communication as a basis for its process:

  1. The Intellect – serves the purpose of communicating and processing (=understanding) abstract and cognitive occurrences
  2. The Body – is responsible for unconscious reactions and reflexes
  3. Emotions – defined as innate holistic muscular movement (action) patterns which are distinguished by their function and direction

And an authentic communication is the key to Parenting : With emotional clarity, dealing with the children and their daily life becomes tangeable and will be registered holistically.

As explained in the case of training actors, PEM uses a similar methodology to train Parents to identify the three levels of communication, utilise them effectively and ensure meaningful, powerful and authentic communication with children and their problems.

PEM Workshop for Teenagers

An Innovative and Revolutionary Method Of Emotional Balance and Communication Based On Biological Process

 

Teenagers, emotions and communication

As the PEM evolved, it identified the need to interact with the teenagers with the language they most understand – The language of unspoken words – Emotions Wittingly or unwittingly they are constantly communicating with the world, sending emotional signals distinguished in three levels of human communication as a basis for its process:

  1. The Intellect – serves the purpose of communicating and processing (=understanding) abstract and cognitive occurrences
  2. The Body – is responsible for unconscious reactions and reflexes
  3. Emotions – defined as innate holistic muscular movement (action) patterns which are distinguished by their function and direction

The Major Stuggle the teenagers face while communicating are

  • Expression (surfacing at the obvious level)
  • Emotion behind the expression (lying at the innate position)
  • The clarity behind transfer of correct Communication (with the accompanying baggage of the formerly stated Expression and Emotion to the sender and the receiver.)

Why addressing this imbalance is important in today’s world:

Information and Communication has become very fast and is the key factor in Emotional Stability. In other words Communication is expressed out of Emotion The challenge of maintaining the balance of correct release of Emotion, hence communications becomes more important.

PEM Workshop for Corporate Persons

Emotion Cleansing Program

The Perdekamp Emotional Method (PEM) is a holistic educational communications method based on a clear and precise biological process. PEM (discovered and developed by German director and playwright Stephan Perdekamp) provides us with a direct, effortless and guidable access to authentic emotions, independent from personal experiences or memories.

In contrast to psychological approaches, Stephan Perdekamp does not view emotion as a capacity of the mind but as an independent and physically manifested survival mechanism, i.e. an innate action pattern that serves a particular purpose. PEM does not focus on the differentiation between positive and negative emotions (all emotions are needed for survival under specific circumstances) but assumes to understand the potentially productive contribution to the individual and to the society what each emotion can offer. PEM aims at responsible and appropriate management of emotions.

In order to manage emotions we need to learn how to deal with emotions skillfully and consciously.

  • Lead to high self-confidence and satisfaction.
