The streaming platforms Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, and Showtime have one thing in common: TV-SERIES. We love to watch TV-SERIES because they take us on a long, multi-layered journey. As actors in TV-SERIES we need to connect and go on a journey with our character on a deep level. How can we find the force that drives us forward season after season and how do we connect it to the goal every single scene in every single episode?Join this online workshop and you will find out.
During the weekend we will work online – together, in separate rooms. We will do scenes from 3-4 TV-series of different kinds, each actor working with at least two scenes each.
The online work is about opening up to the camera and strengthening your creativity in a recording situation. It is also a good preparation for online auditions and self-tapes. We will record the work so you can watch it afterwards.
With the foundation in the learnings of Stanislavski, the heart in the Chubbuck Technique and strong influences form other acting techniques such as the Uta Hagen and the Meisner Technique, we will be creating a modern and cutting age acting for the 2020s.
The core of the workshop 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.
Working language in this workshop is English.
We will analyze the driving forces at work in the scenes, and how to connect them to create a character that can live and breathe through the whole season, and perhaps the next season as well. We will find your personal connection to what is driving the character -how this is about you. In the evening you will rehearse with your scene partner(s) incorporation what we have worked on during the day.
We will focus on how your character drives the scenes and relate to other characters. We will work on how you open up to include others into your world, the importance of time and space in the scene and how you use your body, hands and things around you to get what you need. You will rehearse again with your scene partner(s) in the evening.
On the last day we will explore how your character wins the scenes. This day we will focus on how to connect and how to listen to yourself and to others. Finally we will address the getting out of the head and allowing now to happen which is so important for creating a living, breathing human being on the TV screen. We will record the end result and you can watch it afterwards.
Two weeks before the workshop you will receive one or two scene partner and a two-three scene from a TV-series. Watch the TV-series and rehearse at least two times together with your scene partner(s) before the workshop.
By your computer, ipad or iphone.
4-6 September 2020, 10:00-15:00 all days. Rehearsal and prep work for the next day the evenings of the 4 and 5 September.
