This is a course for directors and writers. It seeks to demystify and explain through exercises, improvisations, and scenes ways to evoke truthful and exciting performances. For the director, it should provide an experience that will give them invaluable insight into how actors actually work and help them to connect and communicate meaningfully with actors. For the writer, it should give them a deeper understanding of the creative value of finding the true events of the script beyond and below the printed text.
Techniques used: Lee Strasbourg & Sandy Maisner & Stella Adler
The instructor can either give the scenes to the students or the student is free to bring a scene in that he or she is interested in working on. There is an networking evening with the students to give them a general overview of what the workshop will be like and introduce them to each other.
