TO BRING: Water, comfortable clothes, and a yoga mat (if you have one).
In this workshop, we take actors through a physical and vocal work, along with games, to get actors out of their heads and into their bodies. We spend time stretching, breathing, and warming up the voice before moving into games other exercises.
After the warmup, actors work on scenes or monologues. We also encourage participants to bring in material that they are preparing for upcoming auditions. Here is a link to a video of the warmup.
In contrast to our camera courses, these workouts and the way into the work takes more of an intuitive and instinctive approach. With monologues we take a more standard approach, since actors are forced to work “alone,” so to speak, but with our scene work exercises, the focus is on the partner, the breath, the experience, and the moment. Sure, we might mention things like “what does the character want,” but this workout is designed to get actors completely out of their heads and into their bodies – no thought, all impulse.
