With Cosmin Chivu
The workshop is based on creative strategies for students/ actors to fully unleash their potential, truth, imagination, and creative energy. It will include two steps - One is working on skill: body, movement, voice, and coordination (Day One) - Second is inviting actors into creating the part (monologues and scenes) by using totally free improvisation (Days Two). The inside-out approach- working on the self- involves the Actors Studio technique and includes fundamental exercises in relaxation, concentration, in-the-moment behavior, observation, sense and emotion memory. The outside-in technique - working on the part- includes the imposition of the silent performance and mime, creating sounds, tones, and rhythms, as well as seeking images outside of text. Actors will begin working on monologues and short scenes, will create original material and will explore the ideas of theme, structured improvisation, use and transformation of space, style, character, and narrative storytelling.
