OPEN CALL & COACHING WORKSHOP
This class focuses on the actor's individualized needs. Actors are free to work on self-chosen monologues or scenes, characterization, physical expression, audition material, self-devised work and/or Physical Theatre pieces. During each class session we offer INDIVIDUALIZED COACHING--giving feedback, suggesting techniques and approaches that engage the "whole actor" working truthfully in given circumstances. The coaching is based in both the Meisner and Chekhov Techniques as well as the coaches' teaching and directorial experiences. Because you'll be selecting your own material, the class will function as a place to "work out and into" what's most immediate and useful for you.
