“The only thing you have that no other actor in the world has – is YOU.” – Mitchell Gossett
Mitchell believes the most exciting way to explore material is not through thoughts alone, but through “ACTIONS” – through what you are DOING with your body. Bring ACTions into the work creates a stronger, more visceral connection to the material. But as importantly, it also provides a means of showing the most unique feature any actor can present: THEMSELVES in the work.
In a fun and nurturing environment, Mitchell will guide young actors through the physical activity that the instrument best shows who the individual actor is and what they uniquely bring to the role and material.
Students will receive monologues in advance of class and Mitchell will offer direction and coaching to lucky participants! Additionally, every student will go home with a personalized feedback form from Mitchell with an insightful evaluation of the student’s performance.
