TUTA tune-up: classical text

June 4, 2018

 

This one-night workshop uses TUTA’s unique physical approach to acting by exploring the power of your own body on stage in relationship to space, script, and fellow actors.  This special edition tune-up will focus on using classical texts such as Chekhov, Ibsen, and Brecht. Using both improvisational exercises and simple pieces of text, you will learn tools to enhance your timing, rhythm, responsiveness, and ability to trust your gut. Each student will have the opportunity to work in both groups and solo, with scripts and without.
