In this three-hour scene study workshop you will find who the characters are, what they need and how they feel—gaining a true understanding of who you're playing. Utilizing objectives, actions and emotions, attendees will develop a simple approach to the scripted material, tackling characters as professionally skilled actors. This workshop provides members private coaching in a class setting. Scenes and partners will be assigned at least a week ahead of time, based on submitted headshots after the random selection is completed.
This workshop serves as ongoing practice or, if necessary, an introduction to the Meisner Technique of Acting. Seasoned actors will be provided tools that, when implemented, will deepen the moment-to-moment “truthfulness” in performance, create deep emotional connection to challenging text and bring powerful improvisational skills to text work. This workshop utilizes exercises Meisner developed to free the actor to “live truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” This work deeply cultivates and develops the actors’ instincts, concentration and imagination.
