This three-day class explores connecting to your emotions and personalizing your choices. You will identify and break through some of your barriers, learn ways to access your emotions and how to transfer and apply them to your acting.  Through inner objects, your senses and particular circumstances, you’ll have a better understanding of Uta Hagen’s principles of “being” rather than “acting.”

Required reading for Foundational Classes: Uta Hagen’s A CHALLENGE FOR THE ACTOR and Richard Boleslavsky’s ACTING: THE FIRST SIX LESSONS.
