“Solent is one of only two UK institutions to offer new technique to young actors” – an interview with Maggie Tarver for the Solent University blog!

fb postSouthampton Solent University will be one of only two institutions in the UK to be able to offer an innovative new acting method, following BA (Hons) Performance Course Leader, Maggie Tarver, being certified as a Perdekamp Emotional Method (PEM) instructor.
Created by Stephan Perdekamp 13 years ago, PEM is a revolutionary system that uses biological impulses and systems to access emotions without the need for actors to recall painful memories.

“I have worked in the performing arts industry as a professional for over 40 years,” says Maggie, “and finally feel so relieved that I have found a technique that is easy, reliable, safe and works every time. “Instead of using memory to generate feelings, PEM accesses natural organic energies to experience emotions, not feelings,” she continues.
