The Essence of Acting
Workshop or Residency for grades K through 12th
After a fun warm-up exercise in a one-hour workshop, we will play theatre games that focus on rhythm, movement, and voice. Exercises will build upon each other. We will put it all together in small groups in a final exercise that can be presented to the group. In a two-hour workshop, participants will work on characterization and different styles of theatre. We will also develop a short piece to present at the end of the workshop. The focus of the piece can be a story or a poem or we can create original theatre.
