I'm always excited about this class because we work on developing the "state of being" that is found in all great performances of realism. Relaxed. Grounded. Outwardly-focused. Impulsive. Experiential. Absorbing through the senses. All the stuff that elevates the presence of an actor and makes for a magnetic performance regardless of the dialogue, staging, or style.
We do this by focusing on various layers of performance, one at a time, during long improvisations. This gives the actor time to settle in and become more deeply involved in experiencing each moment. It also instills in us the all-important difference between "showing/indicating" the moment and "experiencing" the moment, the latter being preferable.
Some of the layers we'll work on:
SENSE OF PLACE
If you want to get "into the zone" for a while, this work will get you there.
