PEM (The Perdekamp Emotional Method) is a groundbreaking biological and non-psychological method for easy access to expressing and processing emotions.
We are pleased to announce PEM Australia will be running workshops across the country across 3 major cities in October through to December.

**UPDATE ** Due to a significant number of requests, we are pleased to offer those in Perth an additional FOUNDATION workshop held over two evenings to introduce performers to PEM.
This workshop will teach an easy and repeatable way to access physical triggers for biological emotions as a basis of then using them for subtle or intense artistic work.
COST – $60 for 1 evening OR $100 for both

What will you get?
● A comprehensive experience of the principles of PEM´s biological acting method and its step by step process.
● Application of the trigger-points that give actors easy, safe, immediate and repeatable access to the six basic core emotions.
● Additional exercises are explored to reach a complex range of intensity and levels of emotional expression both physically and vocally.
● Profound and emotionally dynamic ways of working without recourse to personal experiences, history or traumas.
● Sessions will include embodiment through Breath and Vocal Release, Presence, Energetic Connection, Ensemble work, Emotional Communication, Character and Text.
