Winter-Spring Session begins January 22, 2017
Adventures in Range and Depth
1Sunday Nights (SB)
Individual programs are devised to help participants break through habits, propensities and limitations to achieve maximum range, freedom, depth and power. Assignments are specifically tailored to the needs and goals of each actor as determined in pre-class interviews.
The Character Arc: Multi-Scene Study
2Monday Nights (LA)
Actors rehearse multiple scenes to create dynamic role interpretation throughout a script, emphasizing the emotional score of the character’s arc and the progression of relationships. Tackle the development of two different characters from two different scripts.
3Tuesday Nights (SB)
Acting on impulse in the now. Impulses derived from intense looking and listening. Behavior that happens not behavior that’s planned. Be fully alive! Each rehearsal and performance becomes a true experiment, an improvisation leading to electric performances.
Auditions and The Craft
4Thursday Nights (SB)
All aspects of the audition experience will be covered for both theatre and film including: the greeting, the slate, the imaginary partner or reader, choices, eyeline, adjustments, beginnings and endings, etc. Sides are sent each week – the last seven shot and reviewed.
