Workshop Information

Contemporary Acting Technique – The 5 Questions

Intermediate, Advanced / Acting
Presented by Jennifer Rincon

Students will be given a copy of "The 5 Questions" Acting Technique, originally taught by Earle Gister at the Yale School of Drama from 1980 to 1999. This is a Stanislavsky-based technique that focuses on the playing of objectives and actions, moving actors away from the playing of emotions and conditions. After some initial lecture and interactive discussion, two members of the Visionbox Professional Ensemble will perform a scene that will then be directed by Jennifer Rincon in an interactive discussion format. Finally, at least 2 students from the workshop will have the opportunity to cold read a scene and work on it with Ms. Rincon. Jennifer McCray Rincon, Founding Artistic Director of Visionbox Studio is a graduate of Yale University and the Yale School of Drama Directing program. She was the Head of Acting at the NTC at the DCPA from 1991-2008. She founded Visionbox in 2010 to provide student and professional actors in Denver with graduate-level training.
