Using the combination of Laban movement and Stanislavski’s theory of acting, we will be working on believability in acting, by understanding beats in dialogue and telling a story through breath work. Using games, exercises, and scene work we will break down how to keep the audience in real time with the show, by giving them intentional beats in dialogue and clues using breath work. We will also be discussing how to use breath work to take the audience on the emotional journey of a character, as well as using breath to make turns in dialogue that can be tricky. We will end the class with monologue work that will be performed for an invited audience. At the end of the class, you should be proficient in scoring any monologue or scene with beats and breathwork for auditions and rehearsals.
Level 2 Class – for actors who have previously had a class with Mary Beth
