How to Be Your Own Director

with Jane Unger

Collaboration between actor and director is at the core of every performance. But, actors and directors don’t always speak the same language. This is especially true now when face to face rehearsal time is not available for most of us. In this class, you’ll learn to help yourself do some of the work that is usually done in the rehearsal room. You’ll explore the tools needed to open up and build a character using monologues and scene study. You’ll come away feeling confident taking charge of your role in a production. 

January 25 – March 15, Mondays (8 Classes)

Suggested Accompanying Class: The Director’s Perspective for Actors, Acting II, Monologue Intensive, On Camera Acting, Acting in the Zoomiverse, or Improv for Collaborating, Creating and Connecting
