An Introduction to Elizabeth Kemp and her work
The Sensory Workshop
In this 3-day Workshop actors will be introduced to the renowned work of Elizabeth Kemp and the Actors Studio NYC. Elizabeth will guide actors through relaxation and sensory work which are essential tools in the process of finding the artists truth. Each day will begin with a guided preparation which involves dropping into a creative state; which awakens the senses and opens the heart – providing an open, supple and willing instrument. The work will involve prepatory steps towards monologues; including improvisations and character building exercises.
This Workshop will be taking place in Brisbane this July 2017.
Selection is by online application including a headshot, CV and link to showreel/filmed work.
