In a fun and safe environment, a variety of hands-on exercises will concentrate on these topics.
The emphasis will be on freeing the actor by allowing him/her, to experience getting out of one’s head. The basics of working on text will be explored, culminating in an informal showcase to the public of the student’s work. The specific material to be performed may consist of original material, monologues or short scenes gleaned from established plays.
