CASTING DIRECTOR HOLLY ALLEN’S FREEING THE ACTOR WORKSHOP
Saturday, March 26th from 9am to 4pm

This brand new workshop will focus on playing! It will free you up and get you in touch with your emotions, intuition, goals, dreams, imagination and creativity. The whole workshop will be a series of exercises and games that will unblock and liberate you from the restrictions, limitations and doubts that we often place on ourselves that get in the way of accomplishing our dreams. We will also do some acting work on simple scripts toward the end of class and apply our rediscovered creativity to concrete material.
This is a wonderful opportunity for any actor, new or experienced, to connect (or reconnect) with the passionate adventure of their craft. And hopefully give you some tools that will assist you in delving deeper into material with confidence and a sense of play. This workshop will also help you to feel better about making mistakes, letting your guard down and trusting your creativity.

TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:
â?¢ Games, Games and more Games
â?¢ Improvisation
â?¢ Writing/Dreaming exercises
â?¢ What’s “intuition” anyway? And how do you use it?
â?¢ Celebrating your mistakes (a different way to look at it)
â?¢ Risk taking
â?¢ Empowering yourself
â?¢ Playing with confidence
â?¢ Using what you’ve got
â?¢ Allowing emotions
â?¢ Creative self-expression
â?¢ Open scene work
