Grotowski’s Physical Actions on Camera is the 2nd part of an introduction series on Grotowski’s External Technique of Acting. These modules are recommended for actors but can be used by non-actors.

Areas of Focus
• Continues Grotowski’s concept of Physical Actions, an external technique focusing on the completion and intense focus on minute detailed physical actions, story and character to let the emotions arise on their own accord
• Focuses on completing action sequences, and filling them up with imagined or remembered experiences to give them life.
• Participants are asked to find short non-dialogue scenes from films to recreate the physical actions captured and the story that is being told
• Participants are coached on the physical actions while working on camera. Participants will be working with the camera to see how it captures the minute shifts needed for this work
• Participants learn how to add subtlety to complex moments of intense scene work.
• Participants gain the ability to put together scenes for a Sizzle, or Demo Reel.

Benefits of Physical Actions Acting Training
• For Actors and Non-Actors, you will be able to understand how your body language is being interpreted or not interpreted on camera and how to be in control of it
• For Actors and Non-Actors, you’ll learn to communicate through Physical Actions and be able to read others behaviors through Physical Actions to be understanding and empathetic to their needs, wants, and desires.
• Develop your imagination so as to draw from your memory and be able to create new ones.
• Be able to live emotionally, and yet safely render those emotions on stage or screen without carrying them home with you
• Access your emotional truth consistently and repetitively so as to not have to rely of just feeling it, but through technique, by recreating it.
• Participants gain a greater awareness and understanding of their whole instrument and how to effectively convey feeling or thought.

The workshops will include:
1. Short lectures
2. Interactive group discussions
3. Short recreations of existing physical scenes from Film
4. Longer unrealized scenes from Screenplays, on Camera
5. A Sizzle Reel filled with the students work
