Dreamwork for Actors and Artists with Ken Barnett
May 4th to 10th, 2024 | 5,5 Days | In Berlin

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. – By engaging with one’s own dream material, the artist learns tools that can then be applied to any script or creative effort in order to deepen the personal connection to your work. As is true with each dream, each role or project becomes a new opportunity to learn, grow, and move towards wholeness. – This course is appropriate for beginners as well as people with prior experience with Dreamwork. Participants will have the opportunity to explore a dream or a current creative project. While the workshop is designed for actors, artists of all disciplines are encouraged to attend. [read more…]

The workshop is also interesting for trained actors who need a current demo scene. [read more…]
Acting Workshop with Sheila Gray
June 10th to 14th; 2024 | 5 Days | In Berlin

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 that 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. We will work on preparation, concentration and the physicality for the scenes in order to bring the intensity and depth which make film scenes so dynamic and exciting. I will often interject during an exercise or scene in order to guide it and accustom the actor to taking direction in the moment. [read more…]
