Letter of reference from the acting student Natalja Joselewitsch

(Natalja Joselewitsch, acting student at the Academy of Music and Theatre Leipzig)

“After my first year at drama school I was looking for an acting workshop for the semester break and Bettina was highly recommended to me.

In retrospect, I can say that this week, in which I got to know the “Susan Batson Method”, was one of my most intensive and impressive acting experiences to date, and opened completely new doors for me and my view of acting itself.

With this method I experienced for the first time how to bring a character to life in all its facets and then really feel, think and act in this character. The workshop also gave me a very good opportunity to access my personal memories and to use them specifically for my figure.

Bettina’s enthusiasm for this method, her tireless and infectious energy and her very professional leadership of the workshop gave me the confidence from the beginning to get involved in this still unknown area. There was not a second when I had the feeling of being left alone.

Many aspects of the “Susan Batson Method” I was also able to use further in my role work at the acting school and have profited from what I learned so far. I am very happy to have done this workshop and hope that I will be able to work with Bettina often in the future”.
