Unrehearsed Shakespeare with DC Wright

Cost: $25….yep only $25!!!

Just what is Unrehearsed Shakespeare anyway?

Well...“Unrehearsed Shakespeare” techniques are based on the theories of Patrick Tucker as published in his Secrets of Acting Shakespeare and strongly influenced by the work of the New England Shakespeare Festival. Students of the workshop will be active participants in learning and using the rules and guidelines of the technique to perform monologues and scenes.  In a nutshell, the theory goes that Shakespeare wrote into his text how it should be performed.  So by following the rules and guidelines of the text, the actors of the day could successfully perform a production with a scroll that only contained their characters lines, and two syllables of their cues.

DC Wright is a SAFD Certified Teacher and Dueling Arts International Master Teacher, D.C. Wright has been directing fights and teaching stage combat to others for over twenty-two years. 

Recent professional credits include the Off-Broadway production of The Blowin of Baile Gall at the Donaghy Theatre in the Irish Arts Center, Complete Works of Shakespeare, Abridged, Peter and the Starcatcher, Henry V, August: Osage County, Hamlet, Les Miserables, Moonlight and Magnolias, Of Mice and Men and, Romeo and Juliet at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, and Romeo and Juliet, Complete Works of Shakespeare abr., Titus Andronicus, Taming of the Shrew, Macbeth, Henry VIII, and Twelfth Night at the Illinois Shakespeare Festival. He has also been busy at in academic circles as well directing fights for Wild Party, Melancholy Play, She Kills Monsters, Communicating Doors, The Monument, Henry IV pt.1, and Zastrozzi at Western Illinois University, as well as Romeo and Juliet for the University of Kansas. D.C. also helped direct and performed in two wild west stunt shows for an amusement park in Taiwan.  D.C. is a Full Professor at Western Illinois University where he is the Head of Movement/Stage Combat.

Truthful Acting Starts with Meisner Technique | Now Enrolling

Date posted: Apr 18th, 2016

View More >

Introduction to Meisner Technique - Enrolling Now 

Our last session filled up quickly with several people on the waiting list so hurry if you are interested!

May 8-July 14, 2016
No class on May 30 (Memorial Day) or July 4th (Independence Day)

Mondays and Thursdays 6:30pm to 10pm

Studio 245
900 6th Ave SE, Minneapolis

Fee $350 per student, Limited to 12 students. Students work every class.

An introduction to the Sanford Meisner approach to acting technique – sixteen acting classes are conducted in an eight-week session. In this class the actor works to learn and apply advanced acting principles through a step-by-step progression of exercises that develop his/her ability to work organically, and to create truthful and expressive behavior in acting. This workshop is for actors of all experience levels ages 21 and over.

Sanford Meisner defined acting as “living truthfully under imaginary circumstances.” Meisner Technique instills in actors the basic, essential skills of: listening, responding truthfully and spontaneously, committing to actions, using imagination to fully create and personalize a set of given circumstances, and identifying each individual’s personal emotional triggers. Meisner Technique helps actors "get out of their head" and into the moment.

Attendance to all class meetings in addition to rehearsals outside of class is expected.

The class is open to anyone age 21 and over with an interest and willingness to commit to the intensive demands of actor training, however a face-to-face or phone interview is necessary before acceptance into the workshop.

If invited to participate, a $50 deposit will be required to hold your place. The deposit is refundable if you cancel your registration one (1) week before the beginning of the first class. The balance is to be paid on the first day of class and is non-refundable.

______________________________

Here's some great feedback from our most recent session:

"This class stretched my imagination while stripping everything superfluous; calling me to into the simplest, most specific, and most truthful work I can do in every moment." – Stanzi Schalter

"The class absolutely did wonders for me and can do the same for anyone else willing to put the work in." – Chris Carney

"Meisner Technique has certainly been helpful to me as an actor, particularly for improv.  I had a successful audition where I was given a situation in which I had to improv, and it was helpful to be able to draw on the exercises we’d been doing in class - the repetition and personalization of circumstances.  I was actually cast in this feature length film as a result." – Lynda Dahl
