Event description

Description

Central Question This Class Will Answer: How do we take a script and make it a unique piece of theatre?

About the Class:

Purpose:

This class seeks to help the artist (actor, director, writer, designer) create a multifaceted character from a piece of text in a time allotment that is like an average North American commercial rehearsal period.

All ethnicities, identifications, and abilities welcome. This workshop will be conducted as a safe space for working and will abide by the CAEA Code of Conduct.

Summary:

Using practical techniques and lesser known methods from Brazilian, German, Polish, Russian, and Canadian/American traditions, the artist will create a vibrant, original, layered character that will startle and inspire audiences. The artist will be shown how to embody character through voice, physicality, and thought. The artist will see how a text is the only resource required to create a fleshed performance. The artist will learn how their personal creativity and discipline is the only thing required to be successful in theatre. The artist will learn to embrace their unique voice in relation to text.

Who’s the course good for: Any artist interested in performance:

- The Actor interested in mining different perspectives in the creation of their work.

- Directors looking for ways to enhance their work.

- Writers interested exploring the stage as a medium for their work.

- Designers interested in a performance driven perspective vs. a technical theatre perspective.

- Scholars interested in different practical approaches to performance from text.

- Theatre audiences interested in a deeper appreciation of performances.
