Approaching your character through truth.
There is a magical thing that happens when a person gets on stage. People look at them. There are two types of people who are drawn to this magic, those that wish to be seen and those that wish to hide. Great theatre happens when you allow yourself to be seen though the influences of your character’s truth. It’s a subtle distinction to “Pretending” to be someone else. It’s deeper, and ultimately it’s easier. Often the fear of being on stage has left people with bad habits and affectations that they perceive as “ACTING”. I call this lying. I don’t want to catch you lying. I want to catch you telling the truth. Veritas. Rosemary Doyle has been acting, directing and creating theatre for 44 years. Her approaches to character have been honed over these years, and are designed to quickly enable people to start “being” on stage, which is infinitely more interesting to watch. During this class the student will bring a monologue they are working on, and we will explore developing it to it’s full potential.
