The Actor's Imagination by Beto Ruiz
3A. Beginner level: 6 July 2019 (Sat), 2 – 6pm
3B. Advanced level: 13 July 2019 (Sat), 2 – 6pm
In this workshop, participants will learn to approach acting as a creative process in which they let themselves be guided by internal imagery, enabling them to access authentic responses with their body and voice.
This approach positions the actor as the author of their own actions, who must be fully aware of the richness, intensity and variety of their internal imagery.
Participants can apply this approach to abstract movement composition and to text-based character work.
Topics covered in this workshop will include: awareness of the body, external-internal awareness, corporeal sound and corporeal text.
In the Beginner workshop, participants will apply the work to a haiku. In the Advanced workshop, participants will apply the work to extracts from selected plays.
