To thine own self be true." An audition workshop.
How to walk in and out of an audition with self care.
Auditioning is a necessary evil. What story are you telling yourself and the room when you walk in and walk out? What are you communicating? What information are you unconsciously or consciously transmitting about yourself as an artist and a human? Is there any way to shift that experience?
We will look at what pieces we choose, what clothes we wear, how we handle being seen, and what masks we wear through a series of exercises both written and performed. We will do research on what makes you ‘you’, and we will see if it’s possible to distill that and present it in the odd strange frame of the audition process.
This exciting and successful workshop has running twice a year for several years. We have been uncovering some difficult truths with lots of laughter, playfulness and enlightenment.
