“Man most resembles himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play.”
When children play ‘tea party’ they throw themselves into their role with abandonment and engage in a feedback loop with you, full of appropriate expectations. If you fail to respond in character they will likely say, “stop that, you’re not playing right!”
This is acting, plain and simple.
I believe when we enter a class as ‘a child at play’, engaging truthfully becomes an easier process. As adults we want to indicate that it’s not really us, and qualify our behaviour with disclaimers. This mitigates our commitment and expression.
So in class, you must hang up your adult costume at the door. The only seriousness allowed will be that of a child at play! Because playing is fun, and so should be acting. Really, if acting’s not fun, what is?
I offer classes in the following areas:
Acting for Toastmasters
Auditions/Workouts for Actors
Acting for stand up comedians
Acting for business communication
The schedule will be posted here, but please contact me if you are interested in one of these classes.
I also do workshops for specific groups.
