THE MOST EFFECTIVE PRACTICED SKILL TO ENABLE AN ACTOR TO BE READY IN ALL SITUATIONS IS… IMPROV.!!!
COME TO SHERI LAHRIS’ IMPROV CLASS & FEEL READY FOR ANYTHING AN AUDITION OR DIRECTOR MAY PRESENT YOU.
(Beginner & Seasoned Actors Welcome)
Workshop Intensive 1 – Mission is to awaken the imagination, emotion, and intellect of the student actor by making him/her aware of the transforming power and universality of film and the skills required to achieve excellence in any performance. The actor will learn how to discover the “who, why, where, when and how” of characters within scenes, and use that information to create impactful performances. Intensives further prepare the student actor to “hone their skills” in a disciplined approach to voice, speech, movement, as well as an intellectual rigor in dissecting text, subtext, and style. Finally, these workshops stress both the actor’s ability to use “self” (body, mind, and experience) in a believable, honest way, as well as his/her willingness and resilience to transform that “self” beyond its pre-established boundaries into a more accomplished and confident “working actor”.
