Finding Emotional Truth
The development of the emotional self is the key to unlocking truthful performance. Knowing how we are shaped by our life experiences and understanding their role in our psychological development, enables the actor to harness emotional truth and deliver dynamic performances, both on screen and stage.
Defining pivotal moments in the actor’s life, unpacking and owning these, help to further break down blocks to honesty in performance.
Using techniques and exercises developed by Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov and other master practitioners, this course allows students to explore, develop and deepen their understanding of emotion, character and performance.
