Think. Breathe. Act: Adult Acting Workshops
February 9, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 3:30 pm on Sunday, repeating until February 23, 2020
A workshop series for adults comprising of 3 sessions over 3 weeks progressing weekly through the fundamentals of monologue text analysis, acting for stage, and audition preparation.
Over the course of 3 workshops over 3 weeks, actors will cover the fundamentals of acting and monologue preparation. Once registered, you will select one monologue from the list provided by email. We will workshop this monologue over the course of two weeks, culminating in a presentation during the 3rd and final class.
The workshops inspire teachings from Stanislavski, Laban and Suzuki and embody elements of each to assist actors to analyse, rehearse and perform.
We will also focus on the importance breath has during performance, and the role it plays in decision making and movements on stage.
The actors body in the space, the breath of the actor and moving on impulse
Text analyse including given circumstances, essential action, obstacle, tactics, and stakes
