In this class, students will undertake a number of Hagen’s famous Object Exercises. Taught in many leading institutions the world over, these exercises keenly develop the actor’s skill and awareness in specific areas and promote rigorous technique and attention to detail. Exercises will help students to overcome performance challenges, such as creating truthful physical life on stage, issues of self-consciousness, remaining present, recreating physical sensations and allowing the creation of authentic human life on stage.
Students must read Uta Hagen’s ‘A Challenge for the Actor’, and have watched Uta Hagen’s ‘Acting Class’ DVD prior to beginning this class. ‘Acting Class’ can be purchased online, or keep an eye out for a screening at The Studio soon.
