Unearthing the Human Condition of a Scene with Kevin McCormick

Working on a scene is an important method by which actors develop their process and craft for acting. A scene study environment also provides for the actor the opportunity to explore a range of characters and scripts that will stretch and develop their instrument and ability. The goal of this workshop is to provide a detailed approach to developing a scene and creating a rich vibrant relationship and character foundation. The process and craft explored within this workshop is designed to be of help for actors working both on stage and on screen.

Among the many aspects the workshop will explore it will focus on:

  • The organics of acting
  • Staying present and connected in the moment
  • Working from the heart with feeling and truth
  • Working from the inside out
  • Techniques for character and relationship creation
  • Identifying themes and the human condition of material

This workshop operates in a tutorial style atmosphere with each acting pair having a section of time to create and explore. Some improv and acting technique exercises are also explored as a tool for unearthing layers of emotion.

Scenes will be selected from the Dramatic category of scripts.
