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 a one woman/man show, screenplay, short or novel?
The class is be supported by film clips. There are discussions and analyses of performances by Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, James Dean and many others.
Exercises include learning how to build provocative and complex back stories by opening your instrument up emotionally and finding triggers and psychological gestures in your work. This class has served as more than an acting seminar as past participants have discovered profound truths about themselves as artists.
