ACTING AS DISASTER


  • The Complex Hollywood 6476 Santa Monica Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90038 United States (map)

Sundays • 11am-2pm • 6 Weeks • $250

TEACHERS: Meera Rohit Kumbhani and Tim Reid

*Class size limited to 12

Pre-requsite: NONE

We will bring in texts and plays by Chekhov, Pinter, Tennessee Williams, and others and interrogate the ways scripts are approached and brought into a rehearsal room. How can we take from those approaches, exaggerate and subvert them, slam them against a wall, and see what spills out? How can we find and exalt the role of the actor, especially the one who always exceeds the role they are given? This is still about serving plots, serving characters, serving the surmised designs of dead playwrights and absent-directors, serving the institution of theater as a cultural archive, but serving it so thoroughly and committedly that we are unrecognizable. Please note: There will be some homework and work between classes.
