2020 Camp Advanced Acting


10th through 12th Grades

Advanced Acting

 

So you’ve done a few shows. Maybe you’ve taken some classes. You’re an actor! Now it’s time to take the next step. This two-week course will dive into various advanced acting techniques, including eastern and western European conventions, and of course the techniques that have come to form the American standard. Our aim here is beginning to fully connect the breath, body, and mind to story and character in a nuanced way. Students will explore the fundamentals of techniques developed by Sanford Meisner, Konstantin Stanislavski, Jerzy Grotowski, Mary Overlie and Rudolf Laban. These techniques will then be immediately applied to scene work with a partner within our ensemble. Developing these techniques will leave students equipped with a vast range of tools to use in their future work, whether it be in a rehearsal room or in preparation for an audition, leaving them with the confidence to tackle their next task, whatever it may be.
