How to be a method actor – Cathy Sobocan
How do you get into someone’s head? How do you really create empathy with that person in order to get greater insight? How do you get in touch with your inner voice and use it to your advantage in meetings or other situations.
Let’s tap into your memory, sharpen your senses, and use your emotions for a more heightened, persuasive performance.
In this workshop you’ll experience exercises that are used by actors to connect them with their innermost being, and experience a greater sensory connection with the world around them, from which they draw information to create the characters they play.
- Tune in to how you feel in the moment
- Explore your physical and emotional response to challenging situations
- Sharpen your senses
- Use your memory and feelings to give a persuasive performance!
