Acting Through Dreams
You know how you wake up from a dream and it feels so real, like you lived it? Well, that’s how your acting starts to feel. You’re living your truth on stage or on film. Your authentic self for all the world to see. It’s fun, powerful, heartbreaking and heartwarming. Your whole self in all the work you do.
Dreams spur curiosity about how our innermost worlds relate to our waking lives. In this workshop, Pamela Scott leads an exploration into the connections between the unconscious and conscious to help actors and creatives hear what their inner selves have been waiting to share with them.
Pamela brings her entire wealth of knowledge and 40 years of experience to her scene study classes. Aside from being an actress and playwright, Pamela was a director at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts for 15 years and ran a theatre company for 20 years. She brings it all to the table to help actors tap into their core truth, and access their authentic best selves to put into the work. She believes the world is waiting for you to share your gift of bringing the written word and the characters to a powerful and engaging life. To tell your stories through your creativity and acting craft.
Pamela has a keen gift for creating a safe, nurturing, rich environment to work in. She has a way of taking the pressure off, making it fun and playful while getting the highest quality of work out of everyone. She loves guiding actors and it shows in everything she does.
Pamela will guide you through a daily warm up. You’ll explore your character through self work and your scenes. She will use the techniques of the masters along with her own. She will find what you need and help you to achieve it, by breaking habitual patterns and replacing them with authenticity, truth and spontaneity.
