As actors, we often reach back decades to draw upon psychological forces within us that powerfully align with characters we’re developing. And this can be extremely effective. But what about our dreams? Dreams are powerful clues in the mystery of our own psyche that may be integrated into creative work by identifying key images in your dreams, then creatively applying them to scene work.
In this repeat of our most successful five-week cycle, you’ll receive a scene that allows for an exploration of your dream world. The first four weeks, we’ll develop the scene through rehearsals and exercises that tap into your dream world and channel these powerful images and ideas into your character. The fifth week, we’ll perform the scenes for an audience comprised of the entire StoryAtlas studio, including alumni, auditors and guests and every actor will receive an evaluation of their work. The class is taught by Hunter Lee Hughes (director, Guys Reading Poems).
