Platform Workshop with April Matson
This crash-course acting class will focus on being completely available to the moment as well as getting your performance off of your acting partner. We’ll work with a few exercises that help get actors out of their heads and into their bodies so they can live in truthful relationship to their acting partner(s) and trust their organic emotional life in the present moment instead of working conceptually, or what April likes to call “schmacting”.
