Our goal as actors is to connect with the reality of the characters we’re portraying. This can include feeling and expressing strong emotions. Our characters may love the other characters in one scene; hate them,  in the next; reconcile with them and forgive them in the next; then see the humor in the situation and find the whole thing crazy and funny, by the end of the movie or stage play. Acting can be a wild ride, with opportunities to feel and express a wide range of emotional arcs and possibilities.

In this class, we’ll do some  improv, group exercises and scene work exploring a range of emotions, including anger, fear, love,  aggression, apology, happiness, sadness and more, focusing on expanding our range as actors and moving beyond the pretense of emotion. 

This class can be taken by itself, or applied toward our Certificate Program in Acting.  Nils Osmar, instructor
