Building a Character

ONLINE CLASS: As Stanislavski said, the art of living truthfully on the stage is a complex process that begins with character development. This practical course will teach the process of creating the personality of a given character through an exploration of their unique responses to the given circumstances and unfolding events of a play. By building a character from the ground up, students will learn to feel logical and to perceive and think like a real person on stage. For actors with some scene study experience.
