An Actor Prepares

Explore how to both embody and attune to the psychology of a character in creating a role. This work cultivates physical awareness, a sense of play, and the courage to take risks! We will use improvisation, Stanislavski acting technique, script analysis and training of the tools of the actor: Body, Voice, imagination and Emotions. The course culminates in a virtual show and share. Whether you are new to acting or a seasoned performer, this is a safe place to explore and create!
