The Perdekamp Emotional Method PEM is a comprehensive acting method that integrates all subjects necessary for acting: emotional work, text work, character work, voice work, movement etc. All subjects are based on the same techniques and principles.
PEM was developed by German director and playwright Stephan Perdekamp and provides performers with a safe, healthy and reliable access to authentic emotions, independent from personal experiences or memories.
Day 1 (6 hours): The first day gives an insight into the unique biological process of PEM and practice the emotional access triggers for the basic emotions aggression, happiness, grief, lust, fear and revulsion. The simple and effective exercises will help actors overcome personal restrictions and emotional blockages.
Day 2 (6 hours): The second day will introduce exercises for acting principles such as energetic perception, permeability, energetic flow, reacting to impulses and presence. These exercises prepare the actor to give their performance physical authenticity. The last part of day two will introduce how to apply emotions to text (monologues).
Day 3 (6 hours): The third day introduces PEM’s character work to enable the performer to physically get into and out of characters. PEM text work will be combined and connected with PEM character work.
