Intensive Fee: $120

This workshop will offer you concrete tools and practices to find specific resources in any room that offer you a sense of support and pleasure. By orienting your attention to these resources, you can feel a sense of ownership of the space you are auditioning in, from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. Discover resources that can ground you or inspire you, make you feel big or small. Practice foregrounding and backgrounding different stimuli in your field of attention, so that you can resist being sucked into the stimuli that make you nervous and instead find support in the stimuli that center you in your work. This way, you will completely own your work in the room, and the people behind the table will not be able to keep their attention away from your presence, as you will draw attention to yourself at the center of the moment. 

This workshop is for actors who are currently auditioning. You will be asked to bring in a short monologue of your choice to apply these tools directly to your audition work.
