Actors Technique, NY presents: TV/Film Comedy & Dramatic Characters (Age 7-17)

*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/14/2020
Working towards becoming the character is an essential part of an actor’s process, no matter how experienced. It involves creating and internalizing the details of your character’s life. These details can range from personality traits, to history and family background, to even the most mundane details like favorite color or favorite food. The more thought that an actor gives their character, the easier it is to “stay in character” throughout a scene. Our Comedic & Dramatic Character class focuses on those steps we take towards an accurate portrayal of our character, without falling into the “performance trap” of changing the inflection of our voice or our body language, because there’s a theatrical urge to force the feeling rather than allow it to develop organically as the script unfolds. You’ll learn to ask more questions and get more specific in your monologue and scene work.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.
