Animal Work Acting Workshop
Exploring your character through Animal Work.
Over the course of this three day acting workshop, Caitlin will be taking you through movement/body exercises that will help you to build a deeper physical characterization of any role. This is a fantastic way to create non-cliché, unpredictable, instinctive character choices. It will deepen the understanding of the character as well as allow for you to have an open instrument through which behavior can be revealed. You will discover how it is that your animal moves through space, how it accesses sound, and truly identify their five senses.
Both the scene and the animal you would like to work with is your choice (best if it is something you have worked on in the past). Caitlin will ask you to really sit with the character and daydream on what type of animal you trust your character is. And to then email her letting her know the scene in which you are working on, your character and the animal you will be exploring in the workshop. Your animal may even change after the first class and that is absolutely okay.
Class size is limited to 14 students to maintain one-on-one instruction.
