We will introduce and practice methods to prepare alone as well as rehearse without a partner. We will be working on the Sam Sheppard’s “Curse Of The Starving Class”. Actors will choose a character and stay with one role thru out the lab. There will be homework and assignments in between meetings. The lab work will include: – A preparation to get into the “ creative state” as Stanislavsky described it – A practical character analysis process leading to choices that will then be explored in rehearsal – Animal work, humanizing the animal plus a monologue (There will be a video demonstration on how to do the animal exercise which we we use to springboard into character work) – Private moment, plus private moments as the character – Etudes/ improvisations on the given circumstances – How to use Points of Concentration taken from the given circumstances to explore during rehearsal. Teaching language: English.
