Creative Dream Work Intensive for Artists with Amanda Lovejoy Street
November Friday 11th to Sunday 13th, 2022 | 2,5 Days | In Berlin

Deepen your understanding of the tools of Creative Dream Work through the exploration of a dream or a creative project as a dream. This is a three day in person intensive limited to participants who can wholeheartedly commit to the entire workshop. Dream work experience is not as necessary as a commitment and willingness to fully explore. Amanda Lovejoy Street is a Dream Work facilitator/coach based in upstate New York and Los Angeles. Her work explores what is unearthed when we allow unconscious impulses and images to arise. Amanda has been working with her dreams since she was a teenager. Her first introduction to the relationship between creativity and dreams was in 2005 with Sandra Seacat. Amanda found her way to Creative Dream Work in 2011 and began an in-depth apprenticeship with Kim Gillingham in 2013. She began facilitating and coaching with Creative Dream Work in 2017, working with artists of all disciplines who seek to develop a relationship with the unconscious as an ever replenishing source of creativity and depth. [read more…]

Acting Workshop with Sheila Gray (NYC)
December Monday 12th to Friday 16th, 2022 | In Berlin

Recognized for her work in series such as ‘Sex and the City‘, ‘The Sopranos’ among many others; Sheila Gray will be in Berlin conducting an acting workshop. This workshop will be a survey class of tools an actor can implement while rehearsing and performing with an emphasis on film technique. Since working in film is an intimate process with the camera picking up subtleties, we will focus on how to develop privacy in a public setting and how to create a rich internal life and inner dialogue the camera will then pick up. This will enable the actors to embody the characters and the stories they tell in a realistic and unique way. [read more…]
On-Camera Acting Workshop with Eric Reis (NYC)
Level I February 13th/14th (shortly before Berlinale) | In Berlin

Eric Reis is an acting coach who’s been helping actors elevate their careers for the past 10 years. His approach is simple: he believes that being a great actor is good, but being a working actor is better – and, as many great actors who struggle to find employment know, one does not always translate into the other. The essence of the problem is that traditional acting training focuses on the actor’s ability to take the words on the page and transform them into a character with a rich and deep emotional life. All of which are extremely important. But without a clear understanding of how to apply those skills to the specific requirements of working in front of the camera, ultimately ineffective.

Actors Intensive with Director Geordie Brookman
March/April; 2023 | 5 Days | In Berlin

Join director, teacher and dramaturg Geordie Brookman for a three days acting intensive focussed on a combination of scene building and physicality. We will provide participants with a carefully chosen contemporary short play (either a 2 or 3 hander) and, with Geordie’s guidance, will analyse, rehearse and present the works by the end of the intensive. Using Geordie’s rigorous ‘mapping’ approach and physical devising methods drawn from his time working with Frantic Assembly, Force Majeure and Circa participants will unlock the deepest layers of the text and combine it with compelling physical choices. The intensive is for intermediate and advanced actors who need to either have a level of professional experience, tertiary training or have taken Geordie’s ‘Page to Stage’ or ’Space and Physicality’ workshops previously.
