The Actor’s Practice

Instructor: Maggie Low
This two-semester course explores exercises steeped in Stanislavski’s principles, via Hagen, Meisner, Strasberg, Spolin et al to encourage students to grapple with what makes a truthful actor.  The first semester is the introduction and practice of technique, to open actors to their own emotional and physical instrument. Students explore how the actor brings that truth to imaginary circumstances through “the reality of doing.” The second semester applies those tools to a scene and a monologue chosen from established material, maintaining the rigorous standard of truth-telling established in the first semester.
