INTRO TO METHOD ACTING

With David Nash

At last…a class to show you how not to be intimidated by revealing the truth that lurks within you. It is the core of our inner being that controls every aspect of our lives…in our work, our play, and inside ourselves.

Have you ever had any doubts about your level of skills as an actor…?

Have you ever wondered whether or not you are moving in the right direction…?

Have you ever questioned whether or not you have all the right contacts and credentials that a potential agent or casting director might be looking for…?

Can You Handle The Truth?

As an actor it is this knowledge and experience that defines your own individual level of truth. It’s like a barometer of greatness that is temporarily dormant just waiting to come out. It may not be visible to the naked eye but it’s there in each and every one of us.

David Nash has designed a Method Acting course to bring out the inner truth in you with some amazing results. This introductory evening will let you experience a taste of what you can expect from his weekend workshop and his ongoing class. In the regular workshop and classes, each person will be critiqued individually.

Method acting involves sensory exercises, script interpretation, monologues, scene study, character research and development, improv, and cold-reading. David stresses the importance of moment-to-moment whether it is applied to film, television, or commercials. He also gives you a handle on how to use your skills.

Ismprov is a nifty little format with George Faughnan, featuring Troy Halverson, Ben Owen, Perry Rebekah Frost, Bernie Clark, Randy Havens, Barbara Tushbant, Kevin Gillese, Cris Gray and Rueben Medina to name a few.  8p Nov 16 Sketchworks Theatre.

 

    Our goal is to disprove the old adage that improvisation should never be original, political, or address social grievances.  To accomplish this, we filter these embodied ideas through a term ending in “ism” because those words signify most of the artistic movements, governmental systems, or schools of thought that have been perpetrated throughout history and continue to form the future of humanity.  We are able to explore these things in Macro and Micro relationships by placing human characteristics on animate and inanimate objects, heavenly bodies, deities, and thoughts themselves.

 

    We accomplish this without alienating audiences by focusing on the embodiment and relationships of ideas to each other, and how they form the future.  Ideas are not adversarial, they simply exploit the strengths and weaknesses they exhibit.  We do not play singular human beings in our scene work.  We explore the other 359 degrees of relationships that most improv shows woefully neglect.  Each and every thing in the universe has a relationship to all things, even ideas.  So far, we have explored: Sexism, Ageism, Schism, Optimism, Objectivism, and Communism.

 

Ismprov will begin @ 8 pm Friday, November 16th in Sketchworks Theatre, and lasts about 45 minutes.  Then Cris Gray takes the stage with his group “Dark Side of the Room,” and they will run from 9:15-10 pm or so.  Tickets are just 10 bucks and can be purchased at the door.
