Script Analysis Class

These three sessions will provide you with an introduction (or refresher) to the process of script analysis – the act of reading a script for more than its plot or dialogue. Performing artists will often use their instincts for analyzing why and how their characters do what they do but these sessions will provide additional ways for you to approach finding answers to questions you have regarding choices, objectives and motivation.

3 sessions • 2 hr class time
Tue • Sep 15 - 29 • 5-7pm MT • Patrick Elkins-Zeglarski

Stella Addler Workshop

A leading force in the training methods of American actors, Adler famously split from the Stanislavski-based teaching methods of her Group Theatre colleague, Lee Strasberg and focused her training of actors based on her own training with Stanislavski: not focusing on an emotion (emotional recall) but finding the emotional response within circumstance, gesture, voice and action. The long list of celebrities who have studied Adler’s acting style include Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Candice Bergen, Melanie Griffith, Warren Beatty, Teri Garr, and Harvey Keitel. This workshop explores the activities and inquiry points associated with the Adler technique.
All levels welcome.

Viewpoints Workshop

Explore Anne Bogart’s physical Viewpoints.  The Viewpoints, simply, describe movement through time and space and are an excellent way for collaborators to share a common language and for individual performers to build a specific, physical characterizations.  In this class we’ll investigate the Viewpoints’ power both to strengthen relationship between performers and to give an individual performer the tools to develop and embody character with precision and presence.
All levels welcome.
