Meet & Make: Actor – Director Collaboration in Song
Who wants to start the new year in the rehearsal room? For February’s ‘Meet & Make’, actors and directors will gather for a group discussion/practicum on the tactics used to unlock theatrical moments, make strong choices, and enact quick adjustments during a rehearsal process. After group introductions and discussion, we’ll shift to putting theory into practice. First, everyone will explore the craft of song scenework by working on duets from a pre-selected assortment of options while the group observes. Then, actors are invited to bring in material from their book to play with a director in this group environment. The goal of this Meet & Make is to create a low stakes environment to facilitate new collaborations and give all attendees a taste of how individual artists work in the privacy of a rehearsal studio. No final product. No job on the line. Just artists meeting other artists and collectively improving their skills.
