This workshop is geared to open your minds to ‘the other side of the table.’
How are you first introduced into the casting process?

These are just a few of the questions New Mexico SAG members need to look at in their business of acting.

This is experiential work that explores how the inner process of the actor connects to the flow and shape of dramatic action in a scene. The main focus is on the element of choice, and how experiencing the choices of the character can lead to transformation. Wear comfortable clothes; no advance preparation is needed.

Since the work is sequential in nature, latecomers cannot be admitted and there can be no coming and going during the session, though there will be a bathroom break.

Pending moderation

Milagro at Los Luceros will offer two sessions of an acting workshop entitled “How Scenes Work,” led by renowned producer, writer, director and teacher, Robert Benedetti. The first workshop will take place on Saturday, November 13, and the second on Saturday, December 4.
