Essence of Acting & Presence of the Actor: Introductory Workshop
The first Essence & Presence intensive workshop immerses students in The Actor's Core and Real Time Acting techniques developed by International Master teachers, Nancy Gabor and Paul Binnerts.
Over three days, Paul and Nancy lead participants through a three-step, eighteen-hour workshop exploring all aspects of the actor: the private self, the self as an instrument, the player of that instrument, the hero of the story that is played, and the performer of that story. The workshop combines guided improvisational exercises focused on physical and vocal awareness, breathing, grounding, centering, and movement, with learning and practicing how to tell real-life stories from participants' pasts in the freshly fully-embodied present.
Paul and Nancy's non-judgmental, supportive, and challenging process nurtures the seeds of new work, enables profound shifts within an actor's instrument, and imparts a way of working that can change how participants move through the world.
Paul will teach a Level 2 track for previous participants.
