John Strasberg's ORGANIC CREATIVE PROCESS FOR ACTORS AND DIRECTORS
when: Toronto 10-day Intensive July 11 to 21, 10:00 am to 5:00pm (every day except Sunday)
cost: $1260 US
The Organic Creative Process begins with a good question and a good problem. Much like athletic performance, inspiration that leads to exceptional creative work cannot be guaranteed. However, developing a good habit leads both the artist and the athlete to an inspired state of high performance with more frequency and consistency. In this 10-day intensive led by master acting teacher and director John Strasberg, actors and directors will discover their own uniquely personal approach to bringing life to a text and a character through scene work and Organic Script Analysis, and acting teachers will learn how to make contact with their students in a way that will lead them to work more organically.
