Tucson: Mark Travis "Staging the Scene" workshop for Actors and Directors

From: []
Subject: Mark Travis "Staging the Scene" workshop for Actors and Directors

Mark Travis "Staging the Scene" Workshop August 14 -16, at the Tucson Marriott University Park, 880 E. Second Street. STAGING is a powerful tool that includes individual body language; how characters move in relationship to each other and the space. It illuminates the subtext or unspoken desires, needs, fears and fantasies of the characters.  Actors learn how staging (even self staging) will deepen their own experience, the emotional state of the character and how the audience perceives the character and the scene.They gain techniques that they can use regardless of what the director gives them and how to recognize and overcome staging that is working against them.

At this master workshop, Participating Directors stage two-actor scenes in front of the class as Mark coaches. Cost for actors/directors observing $100. The cost for Actors pre-chosen to participate is $50 (pre-workshop preparation required.) Actors interested in participating in scene work e-mail contact info. and head shot/resume. For registration information, contact Jana at 325-9175, or
