WORKSHOPS

TIME & SPACE:

An Acting Masterclass

Sunday, April 18

11-3pm

Theater Raleigh Studios

Doing strange things with your hands and standing behind the furniture like you want to hide? Feel disassociated from your body when performing?

 

Become aware of your physical body and how it is an important partner in expressing your intent inside scene work or a monologue. Know where your body is in space and how it relates to the things and people in it to create more dynamic blocking and freedom of expression.

 

This 4 -hour workshop is a laboratory: bring your scenes and monologues and through movement exercises let’s see what acting potential we can create through simple physical awareness!


$150 (EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT before April 1: $135!!)

Ages 18+

Beginning acting experience required

THE FORGOTTEN PARTNER:  A Movement Workshop for Actors

 

WHEN: April 25, 2021

WHERE: Theatre Raleigh Studios

WHAT TIME: 11am-3pm (breaks will be included)

Brain? Check.

Voice? Check.

What about the forgotten partner?

 

Actors train three things: Minds, voices, and bodies. Our jobs as actors are to be more emotional, more aware, and more athletic than your average person. Yet more and more, actors are failing to train the acting instrument as a whole.The result is a “head-up” actor with a body that betrays their voices, thoughts, and actions.

 

Add embodiment to your acting techniques with conservatory-style training for the Actor Body. Get or stay on par with the great actors of the world and train your whole instrument!

 

You will engage in ensemble and solo exercises and games so that you can:

* increase awareness of surroundings and others in it

* fully engage your body as a vessel for expression

* develop more spontaneity and authenticity in your movements and thoughts

  • find ease, comfort, and confidence inside your own skin

  • Send and receive intent with whole-body clarity

  • apply what you learn to creating interesting characters on stage or tv/film

 

This class will be in-person. Responsible social distancing will be employed. Please bring what you need to stay comfortable in this social setting.

 

HOW MUCH: $150 (20% off if you pay before April 1!)

WHO: ALL people. ALL abilities. Ages 18+

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I am open to suggestions for classes! I have created some of my favorite classes because someone came to me and said, "I need this really bad. Do you do this?" or "I heard you did this but can you do this?"

From creating fight scenes from Romeo and Juliet with teenage girls to embodied singing classes with people with physical or psychological blocks: 

  create a class with me!
