UTILISE AUTHENTICITY AND PERSONAL TRUTH TO ELEVATE PERFORMANCE

Timothée Chalamet, Margot Robbie, Zendaya — what do these world class performers have in common? A pure and playful dedication to authenticity on screen. Whether they are baring their soul in a gritty drug fuelled rant, putting on high-heels in a plastic dream house, or giving a rousing speech to an army of sand warriors, these actors somehow unapologetically infuse each of their characters with their own personal truth – their ‘Authentic Selves’. ‘Truth to Text’ presents a tool based approach that helps actors reliably access this level of authenticity in performance. It is a ’Best Of’ technique that combines the revolutionary Instrumental work of Meisner and Eric Morris with the ‘Action’ based analysis and rehearsal approach of Practical Aesthetics (the foundation technique of the internationally renowned Atlantic Acting School in New York). Actors of all skill levels will learn a series of practical tools to help them to connect to their authentic selves while simultaneously opening up their body, voice and emotional range (Morris, Meisner). They will then use that new-found freedom and authenticity to personally connect to text, and… just… play, moment to moment, within the imaginative realities of any given scene (Practical Aesthetics). The universe cannot resist authenticity – let’s learn to bring our truth to text.
