There are a million valid ways to approach acting- just as there are many valid approaches to singing and dancing. This class will give you concrete tools to pull that intangible thing we all want to emulate when we see “good acting” out of the intangible and into your body and voice by giving you a step by step guide to go about approaching text- whether it be a scene, an entire play, or a monologue. Looking at late Stanislavsky techniques and his “7 Questions,” we will learn how to “play an action” and “score a script.” We will demystify all the actor jargon one might come across- things like “objective, super objective, tactic, status, beat change, event etc.” We will focus on technique through games and exercises with scene study and monologue work. Also it's real fun.
