On-Camera Acting Workshop with Eric Reis (from NYC)
New Approach I & II November 4th to 7th; 2023 | 4 Days | In Berlin

Eric’s classes are tailored for the seasoned professional looking to sharpen their skill set and the trained actor transitioning into film & television. They’re designed to address the paradox that puzzles actors of every level of experience: namely, that being a good actor doesn’t itself lead to being an employed actor, or to landing better roles. The root of the problem is that most acting training emphasizes the actor’s ability to take the words on the page and transform them into a character with a rich and deep emotional life.

“Creating Personal Narrative” with Martin Moran (from NYC)
September 25th to 29th; 2023 | 5 Days | In Berlin

As actors we work to inhabit the lives of others. In this week-long workshop we will turn to our own lives and stories. The ones that call out to us from within. Whatever form our personal narratives take—essay, podcast, monologue or play–we will explore together how to uncover the stories that hold power and the skills it takes to shape them. “Know Thyself,” Socrates counseled. For the artist, this is a wise imperative. The attempt to discover and to tell our own tales skillfully; to bare our souls bravely; might make us better artists. And, perhaps, be our greatest opportunity to mend the world. Join Broadway Veteran and OBIE and Lortel Award-Winning Solo performer, Martin Moran, in this one-week workshop exploring the power of personal narrative for the actor. [read more…]

This potent material provides the opportunity to drop into our most intimate inner lives. Working physically, participants will be guided to ask the thinking mind to soften in order to invite the truth held in the body to express freely. Discover what is within you that is longing to be expressed in your creative work, and unveil the patterns of thinking or behavior that are limiting you in your capacity for full expression.

Directing Personal Narrative with Tomer Adorian
September 25th to 29th; 2023 | 5 Days | In Berlin

As actors, our job is to transform words on a page into a performance. To translate the stories of others into a theatrical language that speaks to an audience at large. But what if the stories are our own? How do we embody a life we have already lived? In this week-long workshop, each participant will explore their own personal narratives through the elements of structure, storytelling, and directing. Unlock the hidden meanings behind their writing and explore the various ways to communicate them theatrically. Whether you are an actor, writer, or simply a person with a story to tell, join NYC based director and writer, Tomer Adorian in this one-week intensive to expand your understanding of self and take ownership over your craft.
