From Impulse to Dialogue:
in pursuit of authentic moment-to-moment storytelling On Screen
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
So often actors receive notes like: ’throw it away’, ’stop working so hard’ or (the dreaded) ‘do less’. It can cause us to go flat, disconnect, and feel unmoored. This workshop aims to offer tools that enable stories to move through us that are legible, personal, and embodied.
It designed for the actor who comes with a solid training and/or a professional acting background, but desires a more effective framework in order to access greater freedom and authenticity in their work on screen. The intensive incorporates several layers of exploration: understanding the grammar of film, filmed exercises devised as building blocks to unlock truthful moment-to-moment behavior that reads onscreen, and deepening the connection to visual story so that the actor is free to explore and play. Actors will come away with tangible tools that enable them to bring a more authentic and responsive self to the work. This class is limited to 12 actors.
