This weekend workshop with esteemed American actress and coach Roberta Wallach includes an over-view of techniques designed to stimulate the actors' process and imagination. It also focuses on relaxation and exercise-uses and techniques; specific rehearsal applications and most especially, how to approach the development of character work. Using both monologues and scenes to demonstrate the breaking-down of text, the workshop offers deeper avenues into the definition of character, as well as the strengthening of an individual's technique and instrument.
“Being an actor is a lifestyle … a commitment to developing oneself as a unique Artist. In this workshop we address various blocks and issues that inevitably crop up in the actor's training and professional experience”.
