EVERY SATURDAY

We will delve into Stanislavski, in hopes that an overview will inspire each student to begin to find their own ways into their own discipline.

Several exercices will be given such as

Voice
Voice addresses the fundamentals needed to enable this vital component of the actor’s instrument. Several aspects of vocal technique will be explored in this class including diction, articulation, voice color, tone and projection. In support of these areas of focus; physical and vocal relaxation exercises will be practiced in addition to essential diaphragmatic breathing techniques.

Movement For Actors
This course introduces the student to body awareness, physical intention, and the development of character movement. Students discuss the time periods of social acceptance of movement, dance, gestures and manners. Games are introduced to facilitate freedom of movement and assignments include "silent monologues" and "musical monologues". At the end of the course, students will have mastered and be able to present a series of warm ups, movement combinations and a cool down.

Script Analysis
We will begin by exploring a monologue together, and then each bring in favorite texts of our own to analyze. And then the homework begins. Outside of class, we will read a new script every week, beginning with stage plays and then moving into screenplays. In each class, we will break down several scenes from these scripts, as we dissect their texts for keys to theme and characterization. By the end of the class, we will work on sides – when one must find important clues in partial scripts. And finally, cold text analysis. Getting to the heart of a scene with limited time.

Improvisation
In this class, students will learn the fundamentals of performing short form improvisational exercises and scenes. In short form improvisation, the objective is to create imaginatively in the moment, using the tools of agreement, playfulness, and storytelling. The course is designed to allow the actor the freedom to explore character, environment, and situations freely without a script. Scene analysis and dramatic structure are two elements introduced through a series of playful improvisational exercises.
