    METHOD INTRO CLASSES
           The Induction classes cover an opening talk and working two exercises of Stragberg, Basic Relaxation and Sense Memory exercise over the two days. This equips you with the foundation to continue the work in the METHOD ACTING UNIT for the following 3 weeks of HOMEWORK / METHOD STUDIO PROCESS / METHOD STUDIO INTEISVE. Providing 50 hours of classes, with the option to double up at no extra cost.

    METHOD HOMEWORK
           Each Monday and Tuesday in either am or pm class the primary work of both technique and scene study unfolds. The purpose of starting with homework is to replicate the challenges of the actor in the 21st century. Self-taping and a modern film /TV set are very dry spaces where you need to find the means to work from within. With a self-tape or your preparation for a role, the primary is also set up to unlock the text and character. How to construct an interpretation that you can bring to the lens at home, for a self-tape, or for the lens on set.  If you cant embrace these primary steps of acting, your craft and career will struggle creatively and professionally. The other benefits of the homework classes are they’re all recorded and stored in a private space so you can watch, and catch up with classes you can attend. Plus, it gives a very important sense of how your work as an actor comes across with the camera. Homework is challenging but thus very rewarding.

    METHOD STUDIO PROCESS
             Not only can you build on the primary work, but in the studio process classes, you can pull apart and go into great detail. How to create with the character and text. Allow yourself to experiment and fail as you evolve the central abilities to live truthfully in imaginary circumstances. As well as the ability to be private in public. Here is the opportunity to put your scene work on its feet and see how your thoughts impulses and emotions come into play with the material. In all this sense the acting you wish to develop a methodology you can commit to.

    METHOD STUDIO INTENSIVE
    Each day begins with technique, where you shall build further your technique but also your ability to improvise from your abilities. Truly engaging the purpose and potential of both Basic Relaxation & Sense Memory. With scene study that follows each moring of technique, you can see how you translate the technique into the character and bring alive the text. Each piece of scene work enlightens the details and creative flexibility of Strasberg’s work.
    these intensive 3 days offer the space to test how much you can bring from your preparation and practice to the space that would be the stage or film set. The intensive is to mirror back what is possible and what is required to fulfil your craft and potential as an actor.
