Description

Uta says "Keep it Real!" Through this personal, imaginative and inventive technique created by Uta Hagen, you will learn to create truthful human behavior that you can apply to every role you will ever play. What is the Uta Hagen Technique? Created by Tony Award winning actress Uta Hagen, the technique is a process based largely on the rigorous observation of humanity. It is rooted in the idea in that in order to behave truthfully on stage (or on camera), we must first understand what we DO as human beings and WHY. The 10 Exercises allow the actor to create a process that frees them into action without the weight of predetermined emotional choices. These exercises have been used for over 50 years by actors including Jake Gyllenhaal, John Goodman, Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, David Hyde Pierce and more! Through These Exercises You Will: - Become a more observational actor - Free yourself of preconceived "beats" - Discover authentic justification for a character's behaviors - Activate your imagination to build the world of the scene - Create emotion more authentically and in real time - Become a more self-reliant and courageous actor - Become a stronger auditioner with tools that ground you in the frame Participation in this class will require several hours per week of outside preparation and rehearsal time. However, you will not be doing partnered work in this class, so the outside work is only required individually. You will also be required to bring items from home for many of the exercises. Uta's technique is about creating authentic moments from your life, so plan to bring in lots of props and set decor to create your scenes!
