In the February workshops, places available for participants who do scene/monologue work and auditors who observe and learn from watching scene/monologue work. Both participants and auditors do practical acting exercises that the whole class are involved in.
In a safe, nurturing environment, actors will learn:
* how to work on a role from a sense of joyful process rather than the perfectionism of having to "get it right"
* that any actor can go through periods of disbelief (POD) when they are tackling a difficult role and that this can be embraced rather than judged.
* how to choose objectives that are primal and simple.
* how to drive that need to win from your body rather than your intellect
* how to turn a person, place, thing or event mentioned in the script into a living, emotionally connected experience
* how to create emotional and sexual chemistry with your scene partner
* the mindset of a successful, happy and empowered working actor
* the importance of committed voice and speech
* the importance of physical language - gesture, doings, destination
* and much more.
Hours are 10amam to 7pm daily, price: $435 for participants, $75 a day for auditors.
