ONLINE WORKSHOPS

It has been a year and we are still adapting to the new normal. The acting industry has implemented many COVID-19 safety measures and is finding new ways to be creative. The hope is once enough of us are vaccinated; things will go back to the way they were. Until then, we must remain vigilant, keep our distance, wear a mask, wash our hands, and avoid crowds.

Phase I grows out of the Foundation courses.  Technique will become more specific as students continue to develop an initial set of acting skills and tools.  The techniques introduced in the Foundation courses will be applied and built upon, and increased emphasis is placed on making choices, developing character, and using the imagination. 

Students will choose a historical figure, all of whom had died before the year 2010.  Students are expected to do extensive research on their historical figure from week to week; the actors will explore their characters, working on the physical aspects, the vocal qualities and the psychological state of each character.  It proved to be very challenging for the actors and increased their appreciation of the work that must be done to recreate historical figures, and the due respect that must be given.  The actors are given the freedom to extensively explore their characters and be creative in ways they will present them.
