REACH: LIFE MASTERY FOR ACTORS
We’ve played the part, gone on the audition, bared our spirit and our soul for the world or the acting class to see. Now what?
How do we effectively respond, re-engage and re-energize after emotionally draining roles, meetings, auditions and experiences as artists?
One of the greatest obstacles actors will deal with in the life of their career is the fallout from being emotionally “turned on” for such prolonged periods of time. Actors who have successfully moved in and out of emotionally demanding experiences were able to:
- EMPOWER THEMSELVES BY TAKING CONTROL OF THEIR STORYLINE AND INCORPORATING THEIR UNIQUE EXPERIENCE TO GROW BOTH PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY.
- MOVE QUICKLY FROM A SELF FOCUSED APPROACH TO A COMMUNITY FOCUSED AWARENESS FOR MAXIMUM UNITY IN PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL ARENAS.
- PROPEL THEMSELVES FORWARD IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ROLE ENDED BY FINDING A CONTINUED PURPOSE IN THAT ROLE, WITH LITTLE TO NO DOWNTIME.
This class tackles the difficult problem we as actors have of taking our work home with us, explores how that affects our personal and professional lives, and investigates how we can face it head on, making it work for us, with the greater goal of service to our art and our communities. In this session you will learn to:
- IDENTIFY THE PEOPLE THAT ARE MOST CLOSELY AFFECTED DURING YOUR WORK IN EACH ROLE OR AUDITION AND LEARN HOW TO ENGAGE THEM AROUND THE COMMON EXPERIENCE.
THROW OUT THE SCRIPT AND REWRITE THE STORY, EMPOWERING YOURSELF IN THE PROCESS.
Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy admitted to nightmares and other adverse effects of bringing their work home with them in a recent article in AP Mobile.
Katherine will present applicable strategies that will equip actors to transform their post work experience from exhaustion, fear, anger and confusion into exciting, organic, and resilient service to their team, their families, their work, and their communities.
Miss Boecher portrays Olena Marchenko Prentice, a battered Russian housewife on popular TV show PERCEPTION, following a turn as battered girlfriend Callie Rivers on THE CLOSER. On FOX’s PAST LIFE as Jenny Stafford, Miss Boecher struggled with a psychological breakdown and a hostage situation. Betrayed and held at gunpoint on HEROES, Miss Boecher faced her own mortality as Alena, a Russian ex-call girl. As Annie, a naive young actress in MAD MEN, Miss Boecher is berated by Peggy and faces her own paralyzing fear on the job before being fired in the voiceover booth. Et Cetera, et cetera, darling.
