About the Workshop

Class participants will gain first hand exposure to Lee Strasberg’s training and methods to solve the actor’s problems and find truth and authenticity in expression. The actor’s concentration will be strengthened as the senses become more alive and active. A roadmap to creating a fully developed living and breathing character is applied to each actor’s work preparing their monologues.

The exercises in the Workshop will demand full commitment. Actors will be taught to become resilient during the training work and apply those skills to their monologues to test and check what worked and how to self-evaluate, learn from teacher critiques and improve on their work. The second part of class focuses on the actor’s work on a role – creating a character and developing a monologue using Improvisation and the Character Exercises.

This workshop will be taught in English. Actors may perform in English or Hebrew and a translator will be present to clarify any translations or questions.
