Presented by Carol Rosenfeld –
This workshop will be held online over Zoom:
This advanced workshop on Uta Hagen’s liberating process for actors builds upon the work begun in Carol Rosenfeld’s foundational workshop, Uta Hagen’s Acting Process. It is for actors who wish to continue searching for their own process while deepening their approach and sensitivity to a playwright’s work. Taught and created by Carol Rosenfeld — founding Director of the Uta Hagen Institute at HB Studio, who trained with Hagen herself — your work will be supported by Uta Hagen’s approach to acting, as found in her world-famous book, A Challenge for the Actor, as well as the detailed processes found in Rosenfeld’s own workbook, Acting and Living in Discovery.
We will focus on scenes chosen from the plays of Neil Simon and Annie Baker. You will work on specific exercises from A Challenge for the Actor that apply to the circumstances in your scene. You will gain practical experience applying Hagen’s exercises to the development of a character and script, with the goal of achieving unpremeditated truthful behavior in performance that is grounded, specific and alive.
Because time is such an essential part of your creative process, it is strongly recommended that you register for both Parts A & B. Your commitment sets your intention, consciously and unconsciously, and frees you into a deeper experience than having to produce a performance overnight. The development of your craft deserves your attention and your time.
Early registration is encouraged in order to receive preparatory instruction before the first class.
You may sign up for Part B without taking Part A, but both parts are strongly recommended.
