 “Actor’s Journey – 1 Scene in 3 Days” with Ümit Yaşar Bekar

Actor’s Journey – 1 Scene in 3 Days
Combination of Meisner and Morris for Exploring

Every modern acting system/technique/approach/method focuses on getting to reality in a way. Some of them emphasize to opposite direction but their purpose is the same: To build a complete reality.

While Morris takes “I” in the center, Meisner puts “you” under the spotlights. Both of them try to reach reality but their starting point is positioned differently. And this contrast presents us with a solution at the same time.

This three-day workshop introduces exercises, in a unique combination, from Sanford Meisner and Eric Morris, to help us expand our acting instrument and explore our work in new dimensions.

  • How do Morris & Meisner systems work together at the same time?
  • How can I use my personal inventory to understand the character’s reality?
  • How can I use my emotions & behavior on stage?
  • How can I bring reality onto the stage?

We first listen to ourselves in order to understand other characters. Then we will extend this, to listen to our partner, decor, accessories, and the space itself. We will investigate our own and our character’s feelings, mindset, and behavior and turn our biases to our advantage.

  • Day 1: Basic Exercises, Exploring Ourselves, Instrumental Preparation
  • Day 2: Exploring Character, Preparing a Scene
  • Day 3: Living in a New Dimension

* Before the workshop, the participants will be given a short scene and the dialogue must be memorized.
