BE BOLD!!! NOT scene study, the goal of our weekend is to empower you to become bolder, more personally invested in performance, and to utilize this boldness and investment to open doors to deeper, more multilevel character work. For film, TV and stage acting.

We will utilize: Clown exercises. (Not juggling!) These encourage easy access to uninhibited FUN and clear expression of self, individually and within an ensemble.
Interactive work: Actors always act to a purpose and to give and receive from our colleagues in a deep and meaningful way.
Laban: Have you ever read a script and thought, ‘I just don’t get this character’s rhythms?” We all have different rhythms and Rudolf Laban called these rhythms “efforts” and codified these “efforts’ to enable the actor to embody a variety of characters. Whatever the script, using these “efforts” we can identify and inhabit different character rhythms, thereby becoming the character on a deeply connected level.
Open scene work: Using neutral scenes, we will apply what we’re exploring to our scene work.
Each day begins with vocal/physical warm-up, from which we move into clown and interactive exercises and end with scene work. “I believe in serious fun as an actor. In addition, this class encourages fun, focus, and energy – all essentials of acting.” Joanne Camp Sobel
