Welcome to an intense 3 day course where we will work on different scenes from movies, TV-series and stage place. I do this course in collaboration with Teater Supernova in Lund.
Lund is a historic city, close to Malmö and only a 40 minute train ride on the direct trains running hourly from Copenhagen Airport.
With the foundation in the learnings of Stanislavskij, the heart in the Chubbuck Technique and strong influences from other acting techniques such as the Ute Hagen and the Meisner Technique as well as Michael Chekhov and Method Acting, we will be creating a modern and cutting edge acting for the 2010s.
The core of the week is the establishment of a character work on a deep emotional level. Your work will be both analytical, emotional, physical as well as intuitive – using your whole capacity as an actor and human being.
AT THE WORKSHOP
We will analyse and work on the scenes from the character’s point of view and find your personal connection to what is driving the character.In the evening you will rehearse with your scene partner incorporating what we have worked on during the day.
We will adress how your character drive the scene and relate to other characters.You will rehearse again with your scene partner in the evening.
On the last day we will address the ”letting go and get out of the head” which is crucial for creating a living, breathing human being on screen or stage.
We will also explore different ways of getting in touch with our inner world, doing exercises on finding real fear and sorrow and how to get the connection of lovers, close friends, mothers, fathers, children, siblings – as well as to our scene partner – and so much more.
Two weeks before the course you will receive a scene from a movie, TV-series or stage play and as well as a scene partner. You read the play or watch the movie and plunge into the work! If you get a scene partner that travels to the workshop you can do your first rehearsals on Skype.
The course is open to professional Scandinavian and international actors. Working language is mostly English, but you are welcome to work in Swedish, if that’s your preference.
9 am – 5 pm all three days. Rehearsals in the evenings on the first and second day.
