A great way to have play and learn how to unleash creative impulses through the joy of improvising play, imagination/movement exercises and theater games. We’ll explore how to overcome the “inner critic,” nerves, unleash creative impulses and self-consciousness to discover ways to creativity and authenticity. Everyone in the Workshop will receive a copy of the 40 tools on Stanislavsky’s “Method of Physical Actions” acting chart, and through imagination/movement exercises and theater games. Famous Russian Master Teacher Constantin Stanislavsky personally taught Mr. Rand’s mentor, Stella Adler, and shared this chart when they met in Paris in 1934. Ronald Rand was personally mentored for over 5 years by Stella Adler, and with his thirty years of teaching and performing, he will share the use of these tools in the workshop.
