Christmas Program - Special - only December Program for Adults.
Now that we introduced our new teacher Nesley Fairburn, we can say she will be, alongside Nicole Moerland, teaching our New Intensive Program in December, where we will learn so many different techniques around Method Acting.
For those who don't know, Method Acting is when the actor uses his memories or something from his own life in order to create the inner life of his character. Conducting research, staying in character for extended periods of time or making a physical adjustment does not make you a Method actor.
Konstantin Stanislavski was the first person to explore the idea that sense memory could help the actor create believable behavior on stage. This is known as the Stanislavski System. Lee Strasberg (who founded the Group Theatre in New York City and also went on to become director of the famed Actors Studio) studied Stanislavski’s work. The Lee Strasberg Method is an extension of the Stanislavski System. Strasberg developed a series of exercises for the actor that help him train his power of concentration, be expressive and create his character’s reality. Some of the exercises are known as sense memory, animal, private moment and emotional memory. Once an actor learns and masters the exercises, he is then able to use the exercises to explore and create a character.
