These classes are dedicated to the understanding of real-time action as the basis of acting, invoking the inner life of the character through physical means, and the exploration of chance operation in the art of acting. The classes will help you discover how physical action connects to the conscious and unconscious mind, and how that experience creates a new vocabulary for the actor of both surrender and deliberate expression. Like the alchemist, the actor separates and identifies the aspects of subjective and objective experience, and recombines them to bring both actor and audience into the immediate moment.
“A new and meaningful theatre in our time
begins with re-imagining the art of the actor.”
