THE COURSES    MASTERCLASSES

Edgar Lee Master's Spoon River Anthology Ensemble Performance Stockholm University of the Arts

Jeffrey Glickman  - Instructor/Director

The courses/masterclasses welcome actors at all levels of experience. Mature actors with an eagerness to grow are particularly welcome as a “beginner’s mind” is a virtue.  

 

Treating old things as if new is an essential key to growth.

SCENE STUDY WORKSHOP STOCKHOLM

                                         INCORPORATING THE TOOLS

                                                            with JEFFREY GLICKMAN

A weekly workshop focused on the application of the systems and tools in the context of the actor’s approach to characterization with bringing scenes and monologues to life.  We aim that the actor learns how vital preparation is without the support of a director - something specifically important for the film and TV actor, who's typically required to show up with independently prepared (and rehearsed) choices and be ready to work.

 

Rehearsal points are comprised of: identifying unique and compelling choices, the exploration of place, prior event and where we are going, creating relationship, characterization, identifying beats and blocking, objectives, playing the action, inner and outer atmospheres, obstacles, costume, composition and– living truthfully in the imaginary given circumstances. 

Scene work taken from specific "good, simple scenes" identified as those that serve the actors learning process.

This workshop provides an opportunity to be introduced to aspects of the Michael Chekhov system with a focus on the actors instrument, imagination, emotional range and voice.  Actors will work with specific text to learn and incorporate the tools. 

PART I

THE INSTRUMENT

Instrument Awareness

You will work beyond your perceived physical limitations in order to "free YOURSELF from YOURSELF."

Qualities of Movement

You will become aware of the physical-IMAGINATIVE REALM workING towards “aesthetic consciousness – fully exploring the will and use of the various parts of our body for expression.

 

Atmospheres

You will explore imaginative atmospheres in relation to your instrument equating to personal feelings/emotional life.

 

The Gestures and Objective

You will work with the physical gesture to summon the will as the essence of the character and its’ desires.

 

 

PART II​

THE VOICE

 

Tension and the Voice

You will explore how tension or physical limitations create an act of holding the voice back.

 

Language, Thought and the Voice 

You will gain an understanding of the power of language, the flow of thought and voice and how that leads to the fulfillment of your choice.

 

The Powerful Voice

You will experience exactly what a powerful voice is and how to create vocal presence on stage.  You will explore the power that emanates from being grounded in the truth of a moment to express an empowering idea, one which will create an effect in the listener rather than merely hearing an idea that is said with power.

 

Actors will work with monologues from Studs Terkel's "Working and/or a self chosen piece to discover and explore characterization and the human condition under the given circumstances.
