Performing Solo

ABOUT THIS CLASS

Performing Solo is a 6 week solo-performance/storytelling class that will help you to take control of your career by developing material that showcases your own unique voice.

 

So many times we see actors approach their craft as "playing a role" or "playing a character." The person on the page is something outside of themselves and not as a living, breathing human being. The script provides "who" the character is but what makes a performance stand-out is when an actor is able to filter the character through themselves; filling in the blanks with their own personal lives and experiences. 

Performing Solo will strengthen all areas of your acting work, because every character you'll ever play begins with YOU, once you can effectively tell your own story, you can tell anyone's.
