Learn about Lee Strasberg's legendary acting technique which teaches through sense exercises and relaxation how to access emotional memories. In method acting, actors learn to express powerful emotions and are encouraged to leave behind conventional, superficial, and clichéd expressions in search of their own unique artistic voices. The method trains actors to use their physical, mental, and emotional humanity in creation of characters, and stresses in the ways in which personal experience can fire the actor's imagination.
