What if what we see is not all there is?
Sharpen your imagination and deepen your body-awareness through imagery and sensation to more fully experience your
character’s reality. This six-week course will empower teens to approach their acting work with a process, and not be glued to
“the product”. Using scripted scenes from films and plays, dynamic games, improvisations, and meditations, each actor will
end the course with a fresh perspective on their artistry, and be more prepared and excited for their next acting opportunity.
Full-script reading and some memorization required.
