Getting Underneath the Lines: Acting From the “Roots”
February 26, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Learn from UBC Professor Tom Scholte about improvisational techniques to bring more spontaneity and life to your performances!
This workshop will explore some of the “later legacies” of Konstantin Stanislavski. Guiding participants towards being actors of the “root” rather than the “result”, this workshop will equip you with skills to lift lines and characters of the page with startling ease and authenticity in a fraction of the time taken by conventional rehearsal processes based on the division between “round the table” text analysis, rushed blocking, and run-throughs. No preparation necessary. Just bring your authentic, courageous self and a willingness to play.
