I’m thrilled to invite you to be part of my Self-Awareness for the Actor Workshop running February 20th, 21st & 24th.
What is Self-Awareness for the Actor?
I created the Self-Awareness for the Actor Workshop to help actors begin the journey of radically accepting themselves with compassion and love.
Actors are often asked to be more open, more vulnerable, more connective. This direction mistakenly assumes that doing so is as easy as walking upstage or picking up a glass before saying a line. And yet...being open, vulnerable and connective is an integral part of making meaningful theater.
Here’s the good news: Although it takes time and is a process, it is possible to develop skills that aid you in being more open, vulnerable and connective. The Self-Awareness for the Actor Workshop is the beginning of that process.
The purpose of this workshop is to help you discover and explore how you communicate and interact with yourself, your collaborators and your craft in order for you to create from a place of authenticity. You are the foundation from which your character is built. The stronger that foundation is, the stronger your work will be. We will use some of the same tools you use to build a character to uncover and empower your authentic-creative-awesome self.
How are we going to do this?
Through exercises based in the work of Augusto Boal, Brene Brown, Frederick Alexander & etc., journaling and group discussions, we will identify who you are as a creator, bring awareness and understanding to your fears, develop self-compassion, demystify perfectionism and cultivate self-acceptance. Plus much more!
Doing this work can strengthen your auditions, rehearsals and performances as you learn how to be more present, connective and compassionate in your work as an actor. This increases your ability to be a sought-after collaborator and an engaging performer.
