Introduction to Fitzmaurice Voicework
July 10 - July 31
An actor is limited only by the range of his or her instrument. This instrument includes the voice, body, breath and emotional accessibility. This class allows students to learn about the basic format and tenants of this effective voice technique. Fitzmaurice Voicework is designed to let your body and voice work with freedom and full expression to access your creativity and emotional range. This 4- week workshop will introduce students to the ideas of destrucuring and restucturing as well bring attention to their own personal blocks and tensions in the work.
ANIMAL WORK WEEKEND WORKSHOP
JUNE 14, 15, 16
Exploring your character through Animal Work.
Friday June 14th. @7-9pm
Saturday June 15th and Sunday June 16th @10 am- noon
Over the course of three days 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.

MEISNER BRUSH UP Summer Workshop for EMAS alums
June 24 - August 12
We are calling it Meisner Brush Up and essentially it is an 8-week class that will help get you back on your impulses and taking those big emotional risks that you were doing in our 2nd year of Meisner. The syllabus will really work those skills of listening and taking things personally, crafting for the highest stakes, as well as justifications, impediment and point of view work. You know, all the work that really made you feel like you could conquer anything.
Introduction to Williamson Movement Technique
June 24 - July 29
Using the fundamentals of the Williamson Technique, this class functions as a physical guide to help begin to identify your own unique habits of tension and to begin to let go of extraneous physical behavior. This technique was specifically designed for the actor studying The Meisner Technique, to integrate the philosophies and techniques of Meisner training into the body and voice. In doing so, you will become less physically cluttered, less self-conscious, and more capable of creating specific, unapologetic behavior with ease.
