The participant will be able to customize his/her training and research methods towards the experience of a great breakthrough for him/her in the Art of the actor.
We hope you embark on this great journey, where you will receive our personalized attention and where you will have the means to express yourself as an artist, giving voice in a theatrical language based on actor's methods from a combination of world masters, singing or sonic expression, storytelling, and other tools and techniques that will enable you to flourish as an actor or actress.
If the participant would like to prepare a solo piece for an intimate public presentation, this option is available.
Those who work well, will also be able to participate in group workshops and even in professional theater rehearsals and performances.
The KEY to acting, is Not Acting.
I enjoy providing the experience of catharsis which so many have experienced through the actor's training. Bringing someone in touch with the inner resources, tools, and even dormant forces and energy is one thing I love to provide. I like that the participant is also making his/her secrets productive as he/she learns to sculpt the elemental/primordial actor's materials into a piece of theatre, with voice, physical action, and scenic work.
