Acting Technique with Karen Sternberg and David Ian Lee
The basic principles of acting will be explored through reading, discussion, and class exercises. The performance element will focus on development of two contrasting monologues for an audition setting and short scenes from contemporary dramatic literature.
The courses are conceived with the understanding that acting begins with inspiration, with that which is innate, which is unlearned, and is subsequently given shape and made art through the practical application of technique. Both of these elements, the learned and the unlearned, are essential to the actor; to forsake either one in pursuit of the other is to be false to the craft, for neither the person who relies solely on what gifts he may possess, nor the uninspired technician, may call himself an actor.
All classes are held at the Bloomington Center of the Performing Arts, 600 N. East Street Bloomington, IL. And taught by professional actor and playwright Karen Sternberg and her husband David Ian Lee.
