Say goodbye to using imaginative or emotional recall techniques in your acting.

Kalliso’s Perdekamp Emotional Method (PEM) is a groundbreaking, globally-acclaimed acting method that provides actors with a direct, effortless and safe access to authentic emotion on a purely physical basis, without using personal experiences or emotional memory.

Taught at Universities

30+ Years of Research and Development

7000+ Actors from Over 55 Countries Coached

A Revolutionary Approach to Acting.

Developed by German playwright and director Stephan Perdekamp, PEM is the culmination of decades of theatrical research and experimentation aimed at understanding the biological mechanisms behind emotion.

Through addressing unconscious neurological access points in the nervous system, alongside a series of body-focused exercises unique to PEM, we teach actors to effectively “turn on” emotions at will, freeing them from the constraints of personal history and mental barriers.

Our goal is to provide actors with a safe, reliable means to stretch their artistic horizons and  craft emotionally authentic performances without sacrificing their wellbeing or mental health. 

Physical access to authentic emotion.

Sustain intense emotional states safely and repeatably.

Reframe what emotions are and how they can be utilised for your craft. 

Expand emotional range & performance capability beyond personal experience.

Work through personal blocks and limitations.

A comprehensive method that can be honed and developed over a career.
