Certificate Course from the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute

METHOD ACTING WORKSHOP
 David Lee Strasberg will work with students, giving them a focused and concentrated taste of The Lee Strasberg Method ®.  The Method trains actors to use their physical, mental, and emotional experience to conceive and express the life of the character.  It provides them with a craft that helps them create a reality and respond truthfully under imaginary circumstances in any acting medium or style. 

Films of Lee Strasberg’s lectures will be used to enlighten and demonstrate his Method.  David will introduce concentration and sensory exercises developed by his father, as well as scenes, monologues, and improvisation, to help students integrate the exercises into the actor’s work.


FILM & TELEVISION WORKSHOP

Using the foundation of Lee Strasberg Method Acting®, Sasha Krane will focus on developing camera awareness and how the actor creates interesting physical behavior. The class will study classic film scenes and examine what the actors are doing to create memorable moments and characters.  The students will prepare scenes, which will be reviewed, and notes and adjustments will be given.  The differences and common ground between the three primary acting media of stage, film, and television will be explored.  The scenes will be recorded, so that students can analyze their work. 

This class is designed to be practical and relevant. Students will have the opportunity to act in front of the camera. Interested students will also have the opportunity to handle the camera and film scenes or even practice directing in order to understand the dynamic between the actor and director.

The Heart and Art of Playback Theatre

Ben Rivers, a British-Australian writer, educator and drama therapist who has 14 years of experience working with those impacted by oppression, violence and trauma, will be conducting a 5-day intensive, interactive introduction to Playback Theatre in Mumbai.

Used in over 60 countries as a tool for community building, trauma response and cultural activism, Playback Theatre is a powerful response to the fundamental human need to share one's story.

In this workshop, participants will develop their ability to identify the central events, meanings and emotions that a 'teller' presents in their story; we will learn to identify the important historical, social and political forces that are mentioned or implied. We will also develop ways to translate these 'narrative cornerstones' into enactments that are rich in artistry and effective ensemble work. In addition, we will focus on voice development, movement practice and improvisational skills. The philosophy and application of Playback Theatre for community building, cultural activism and trauma response will also be explored.

This workshop is accredited through The Freedom Theatre's School of Playback Theatre - an affiliate school of the New York-based Centre for Playback Theatre. Workshop hours can be counted towards an internationally recognized Diploma in Playback Theatre.

Performing artists, educators, community workers and cultural activists are welcome to apply.

Workshops function on many levels and are open to anyone who wants to explore and develop their personal creative power in the art of acting, whether they are experienced professionals or enthusiastic beginners.

Venue : Gandhi School, Juhu, Mumbai - 400058, maharasta, India

Explorations through the self: A workshop for actors conducted by Jyoti Dogra


The workshop will explore techniques that encourage you to create an inner dialogue with your self, opening up intuitive ways of reacting and receiving, moving away from learnt/taught ways of emoting and acting.

While the approach of the work is physical in nature, the focus of the work is not body movement or flexibility. The focus lies in each participant accessing his or her individual inner resource which opens the self to a flow of images and associations which keep appearing, disappearing and changing. Our response and shaping of these lost memories, images and forgotten moments will become the material for each individual participant to create their own performance work.


Dates & Time: Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July (11am to 4pm)
Wednesday 11th July (5pm to 10 pm)
Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th July 2012 (11am to 4pm)
