WORKSHOP ONE: ‘THE GOLDEN BOX’ INTENSIVE
THE GOLDEN BOX 2-DAY ACTING INTENSIVE The Golden Box 2-Day Acting Intensive is an in-depth workshop that breaks down different acting techniques and “acting tools” that artists can draw upon to form an individual toolbox, their very own Golden Box. Michelle Danner will help you to develop your Golden Box of techniques and tools that you can use when approaching a role or a scene, whether it be for film, television, or theater. These acting techniques are based on those created by Meisner, Strasberg, Adler, Hagen, Chekhov, and Stanislavsky.Michelle Danner brings all elements of the craft together and helps actors learn how to use them, discover their creativity, and passion for the work. The class is supported by analysis and discussion from various film clips with performances by Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, James Dean, and many others.
WHAT ACTOR’S LEARN – The Golden Box will teach actors how to get out of their head, follow their impulses, and begin to live completely in the moment. Actors will learn to access their full range of feelings and emotions at a moment’s notice by finding their own unique emotional triggers based on their imagination and personal experiences. Actors will learn how to create vivid, fleshed out, and interesting characters through this intense and emotional workshop with lectures and technique exercises. Exercises will teach actors how to build provocative and complex backstories by opening up their instrument emotionally and finding triggers and psychological gestures in their work. This class has served as more than an acting seminar as past participants have discovered profound truths about themselves as artists.
WHO WILL BENEFIT – This technique is effective for actors of various skills. Actors around the world have found success studying with Michelle because she takes the emphasis off the dogmatic method and helps actors discover their own creativity.
THE CLASS FOCUSES ON ANSWERING THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:
- Why are some choices more powerful than others?
- How does one deliver a raw, unforgettable performance?
- What specific tools can be applied to film, television, and stage work?
- How does one develop a personal story from scratch and discover material for one woman/man show, screenplay, short film, or novel?
