Actors Rep is thrilled to announce an exciting one-day workshop with Peter Zazzali, the director of our next production, The Fever (October 12th, 13th, 15th, 19th, 20th and 22nd at Konrad Café and Bar).
The workshop, titled ‘Psychophysical Approaches to Acting’, is for ages 16 and up and will take place on Saturday, October 1st, from 10am till 4pm, with a one-hour lunch break. (Lunch is not provided.) The location is to be confirmed.
In the workshop actors will learn to use their minds and bodies as expressive instruments in service of a text. Using a variety of techniques, we’ll explore the ideas of Linklater, Laban, Berry, Strasberg and Stanislavsky, as well as eastern techniques (tai chi chuan and yoga) in a vigorous five-hour workshop designed to help actors become fully present onstage. Participants will leave the session with multiple tools for activating their imaginations, emotional lives, voices and bodies onstage.
Dr. Zazzali is an internationally recognized actor trainer and stage director whose credits include the National Theatre School of Ireland, Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, and numerous theatres and universities in the US. He is currently on faculty at the University of Kansas, where he serves as the Department of Theatre’s lead acting teacher and director. His recent book, Acting in the Academy: The History of Professional Actor Training in US Higher Education, focuses on acting pedagogy and practise in America (Routledge Press 2016).
