Anyone can memorize lines, but an actor has to bring their character and dialogue to life through “truth.” How does an actor approach a scene and how do they recreate, process and control emotion? How do proper breath support, body language, physicalization of character and intention play a role in the success of an actor’s performance? How do they discover, process and respond to what is in the scene around them, and how do they convey their objectives and obstacles to the audience? Learn how to find clues in the text that relate to who your character is as a person, their objectives and obstacles, and how to make character-driven choices that lead you to a more truthful performance. Explore techniques that push you to greater heights, build confidence, help you become a stronger scene partner, and a better-rounded performer.
