Andrea's Workshops

    Movement for the Actor

    , Intermediate, Advanced / Acting, , , , , /

    This workshop will use a rigorous and practical movement training to lead students through supporting emotional and psychological choices with their full physical selves. Students should come to the workshop with a short monologue they would like to work on.

    The Dramatic Self

    Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced / Acting, , , , , /

    The most honest art is the art that comes from what we know. At the same time we don't want to put only ourselves onstage again and again. This workshop guides the student through molding their own personal experience into art. Students will re-imagine the stories and people of their life into scenes and monologues using short writing exercises that focus on myth and alternative points of view. Bring something to write with and something to write on.
