San Francisco-Northern California Local Conservatory Presents Tapping Into Your Imagination with Bobby Weinapple

This workshop is designed to help actors find ease using the imagination as their primary tool in connecting emotionally. If you have ever been confused by the myriad terms and approaches of acting methods, or have felt pressured to “be more emotional,” this workshop will help participants sort through and create a foundation for a way of working, no matter what one’s approach or training may be. This is a hands-on workshop which includes improvisational and scripted scene work, as well as covering a clear, practical understanding of foundation concepts such as:

  • Substitution
  • Backstory
  • Given circumstances
  • The role of emotion
  • The magic "as if"
  • Being "in the moment" 

When: 7 - 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30

Where: Phoenix Annex/Seydways Acting Studios (Native Sons Building)
414 Mason Street
