About the Event
"How do you make yourself cry?"
It's one of the most common questions we get as actors, and oftentimes, one that creates a stress response... C'mon... you know the one... You read the auditions sides and "his eyes well with tears" or "a single tear runs down her face" and you think to yourself "CRAP!"
First of all, let us say a few things on this subject.
1. You do NOT have to be able to cry on command to be a good actor.
2. What the stage direction says doesn't always mean you HAVE to cry.
3. Just connecting emotionally, trying not to cry, or making a different but equally honest choice are all VERY OFTEN solid alternative options.
But there are times when the director really wants those tears, or just you, the actor, want to utilize tears to assist in displaying the emotion of a moment (this is also a time when menthol sticks or tear sticks can be super handy!)
However, if after reading alllll of this, you still find yourself thinking "Yes, but I'd really love to be able to actually produce tears in the moment and without any outside help." Then this workshop is for you!
Together we will explore various physical techniques, exercises, breath control skills and other approaches used by actors like Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Anya Taylor-Joy and Margot Robbie. These tools (when combined with solid character work) can be utilized to produce physical, outward results to compliment those inner emotions time and time again.
