Who is this workshop for?
Everyone. We welcome both actors and non-actors with an interest in the arts.
This workshop is open to anyone from all backgrounds.
Minimum age for admission is 18 and above.
What is the Lee Strasberg’s Method?
An acting technique, Strasberg’s method brings out the inner life of a character. Actors trained in this method use their personal experiences to inhabit characters. They are sensitive to sensory realities. They are truthful. Authentic. Present. And they are more in tune with their physical, mental and emotional instrument.
In this workshop, you will learn to create art that resonates: How do we dissolve unnecessary tension in our body? How do we access our experiences readily? Being watched, how can we perform freely?
During this 8 week programme Kamil will teach Strasberg’s acting fundamentals as a comprehensive and carefully-planned curriculum aimed to develop self-awareness, critical thinking, and confidence in actors and non-actors alike.
Our instructor, Kamil, works with every student individually. This means that you’ll receive personalized feedback and assignments that cater to your learning needs. You’ll learn to perform monologues, project your voice, devise scenes, study voice projection techniques and practice sense memory and relaxation exercises.
