Description

The secret to acting is making the role personal. Is important to find what is seemingly different at first glance, yet similar, between yourself and the role. During this class you will be given different tools to develop and understand the role you want to play.

Sharpen realistic playing, self awareness, creative imagination, characterization and emotional connection.

You will further develop the stimulus-response technique by understanding in depth your character's text and subtext.

This class includes pantomime exercises, guided meditation exercises, characterization tools, script analysis and monologue coaching. At the end of the class you will create videotape of the monologue you worked on.
