Advanced Class Lessons

ONLINE CLASS

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25TH 7:00 PM

(class will run anywhere from 1 to 2 hours depending on the size of the group and the amount of time needed to work.If we need to go longer, we can.)

* An email invitation to join the class group will be sent earlier before the class in plenty of time for you to download the Zoom app and find our class. This app does not cost anything to use. 

1. Please warm yourself up well at home. The class online will not include warm-up or acting exercises. Discussion and script work only.

2. Be somewhere in your home where your internet connection is the strongest.

3.  Please find a private place to work. Class work is private and even online we should treat it that way without anyone else in your household listening in or viewing the work. Everyone is on the honor system to protect the privacy of your fellow students.

4. Please be without distractions. If you cannot do the class without interruptions, we recommend passing on it, or if you have an obligation in your home like a child or loved one, just log off the class midway if necessary.

5. There is an option for me to record the class and I plan to do so unless there are any objections. Please let me know when we begin if there are any objections.

IMPORTANT RULE:

* Our same rules of privacy apply and we do not want any of what we are working on to be posted online or shown to anyone who is not in class. Please refrain from screen shots or recording of our session. The recording I make would e to allow enrolled students to watch the class again.

MATERIAL:

* Please review the chapter that was posted last week Chapter 10, The Actor's First Approach to the Author.

and be ready to discuss as well as use as frame of reference when you work on the material.

Below are the scripts from several different plays. Your name is listed by the script and role. We will work approximately the first two-three beats of each scene. You will read with me. Have the whole scene prepared, but expect to concentrate on those first few beats. You do not have to be off book.

INTERMEDIATE STUDENTS WHO ARE OBSERVING, PLEASE READ THE SCRIPTS AND FEEL FREE TO REHEARSE ONE YOU FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT TO ENGAGE AS FULLY AS POSSIBLE IN THE CLASS. Even if not performing the material it will help you feel more connected to it when observing.

ARCHIVE LESSONS

Week of March 16th through 20th 2020

* Continuing our conversation regarding perspective, take a look at this chapter from Stella Adler's The Technique of Acting. This is Chapter 10, The Actors First Approach to the Author. In this chapter Stella gives us some practical exercises for tapping into our opinions and our understanding of what the writer gave us to think about. I encourage you to try the exercises in this chapter and chronicle your discoveries.

* Below are three monologues from the film Almost Famous. The characters in this film have very specific perspectives on life and on the people they love and care about. Perspectives on the things they believe matter and are worth fighting and dying for. Each of these characters is working to fill a need and void and reaches out to someone in these monologues to accomplish it. Do not believe they are all meant to be sentimental. But they are all meant to have size. If you read the above chapter, this statement will ring true to you. I encourage you to work the monologue closest to you, and feel free to tape and send to me at lisina@thecompanyactingstudio.com for notes.
