Henry LaBrun Studio at the Wortham Center
Instructor: Jennifer Gatti
January 9 – February 13 (6 weeks) $110
Heighten your awareness, nurture your individuality, and expand your imagination in this foundational acting technique class led by Jennifer Gatti. Through group and individual exercises that strengthen concentration and trust, students will explore a common vocabulary (objective, intention, action, circumstances), which serves as a foundation for the acting process. Ultimately, students will use these tools to achieve truthful moment-to-moment behavior through the development of a final monologue. This class is suited for adult actors of all experience levels.
