"PEM is a clearly structured method, based on a holistic approach to developing acting skills, with a strong impact on the forms of theatrical expression. This method ensures the quick, efficient and secure elaboration of emotional states, offering thus a viable solution to one of the major problems of the actor's art and the creative process.
The Perdekamp method stands out from other methods of accessing emotional states based on physicality through its simplicity, accuracy, full expressive power, and last but not least, through its amazing organic structure.
Thanks to the clarity and effectiveness of the method, the interpretative qualities of our students have shown an unexpected and fundamental development."
