SENSE OF PLACE, a workshop for actors

with Steve Anderson



"I'm amazed at his keen insight into the craft of acting!" - Guy Castonguay, Actor



In our work as actors, we are always seeking ways to engage, to become deeply involved in the work we're doing, to be responsive and not "in the head," as we say.  An exploration of "sense of place" leads to discovery, impulse, and opens the actor up to the world of the character in ways that are tangible and often very surprising.


There is almost nothing better than the feeling of being "led" through a performance, freely, as opposed to that horrible feeling of "pushing" ones way through, and work on 'sense of place' can help the performer quickly find it.  But aside from that wonderful 'state of being' and the connections this work creates, "place" is an often overlooked but very valuable tool for the actor in moving from script analysis to rehearsal to making choices that can be embodied in very textured and fulfilling ways.


Join Steve for a day of improv and open scenes that will undoubtedly inspire and invigorate!
