Course Overview
Is your audition or performance ever let down by a rushing mind or a need to prove “I’m good enough to be here”? This special six-week course will equip you with tools to become grounded in the scene; to be naturally captivated by your character’s circumstances and relationships, stop over-thinking and succumbing to self doubt. Grace offers honest, detailed feedback while simultaneously inviting you to sit with your gifts, enjoy your own interpretation and bring fun and lightness back into acting. Every actor will workshop and film a scene each week and take home the footage for personal reflection or industry use.

Course Outline

This 6 week course will provide:

  • Techniques to become grounded in the scene before ‘action”.
  • Techniques to work with nerves and self doubt.
  • Tools to create genuine connection to other characters in the scene.
  • Imagery – grounding yourself in the 5 senses of scene.
  • Techniques to get specific about your own interpretation of a scene (specificity brings freedom and confidence to play).

Course Outcomes
Through this course, you’ll find freedom to:

  • Play rather than striving to “get it right.”
  • Honestly listen and be truthfully changed by the other actor.
  • Experience more genuine connections with other characters in the scene.
  • Become more curious about (and enjoy!) your own interpretation of a character and scene.
  • Let go of control over the scene.
  • Make more exciting choices and “raise the stakes” in the scene.
