This class is an extended weekend intensive.
The fusion of personal experiences and imagination is what allows an actor to bring a fictional character to a complex, spontaneous and compelling life in performance.
However, accessing real emotion and living truthfully in an imaginary set of circumstances is often a challenge for actors. In Personalisation, Marilyn McIntyre has designed and delivered a series of progressive exercises that seek to address these issues. These exercises outline specific techniques that facilitate genuine emotional responses to source material.
The exercises require the actor to explore their connection to emotional stimuli including music, images, news stories and prose - thereby learning tools to bring genuine emotional responses to their work and performance. These exercises are undertaken individually and as a group during class, and are supported by homework assignments.
