From the doing comes the emotion

Sanford Meisner

Philippa had got a BA hons in acting from Italia Conti, which she completed after moving to London from Sweden in 1998. After deciding to concentrate on directing she worked extensively within that field, both as director and assistant director on the Fringe and London’s West End.

In a bid to concentrate more on her teaching and her passion for training Philippa completed a Master Degree, with distinction, in Actor Training and Coaching from Central School of Speech and Drama, concentrating mainly on Meisner technique.

Philippa works as a private coach as well as an Acting Tutor and Director at Italia Conti Academy’s BA in Acting, International school for screen acting, Aelfa Academy of Dramatic Arts and Millenium School Performance, where she teaches Scene Study, Acting Process classes and Meisner technique.

Philippa is passionate about the use and teaching of Meisner technique and continues to study the technique alongside teachers from New York City, as well as develop her own approach focused on Meisner and Actions. Her articles on the subject have been published both in England and America.
