BAD ACTING – THE WORKSHOP

A deep dive into the shallowest waters.

Take a look at some previous workshop exercises here.

And two pieces I like to read aloud during workshops are here (David Levine, “Hopefuls”) and here (Julia Bryan-Wilson, Mark Russell, Simon Dove, and Sabrine Breitwieser, excerpts from In Terms of Performance).
