Instructor: Elizabeth Hess
This class focuses on releasing the inner life of the actor through embodied experience. In the Fall semester this is accomplished through group and partnered meta-physical explorations. Behavioral, physiological and psychological states of being are explored to release the actor’s instincts, access experience and ignite imagination. In the Spring semester, students are assigned directing scenes which they also bring into acting class. The focus will be on active choices based on both truth and transformation that is accessed through the interface between the inner life of the actor, the life of the character and the world of the play.
