The Depths: Scene Study with Kim Krejustc
The Depths: Scene Study with Kim Krejus
How do you truly embody a character’s circumstances? What does it take to be alive to the moment that is right in front of you? To actively pursue your character’s objective, whilst being vulnerable to the effect your acting partner has on you? The Tri-Ad of acting is the pursuit of human needs and wants, having the willpower power to overcome obstacles and being in action to achieve those desires. It is not what we feel but what we do, that reveals who we are.
This is a scene ‘process’ class to explore the simple, yet profound 6 Steps of Uta Hagen’s legendary Technique that evolved out of her work at New York’s HB Studio. Uta Hagen articulated her approach to acting in her two seminal acting books, Respect for Acting and Challenge to the Actor.
Participants will be assigned a scene (and a play) and preparation to do before the class begins.
Over the course of 6 weeks, actors will discover how to apply Uta Hagen’s technique through scene work.
Actors will unlock their creative ability to deeply identify with the character’s circumstances and discover the joy of being in play when the stakes are high and the choices are specific and the preparation is detailed.
