THE CLASSES

Method Acting with Paul Rush

Actor, writer, director, and acting teacher at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. Paul Rush is an award winning writer and director.


The first part of each Method Acting class began with Lee Strasberg’s relaxation technique and then moved to his sequence of sensory exercises which train the actor’s concentration, ability to respond to imaginary objects, and organic expression. 
The second part of the Method Acting class was devoted to improvisation, scene work, and monologues where students applied what they have learned in the exercise work to fulfill the demands of a play and the creation of a role.

Scene Study with Paul Rush

Scene Study offered students the opportunity to move beyond class work and act in fully rehearsed scenes on stage. This class guided the students as they gained a deeper grasp of the complexities of a scene by examining the dramatic elements of the material. Course material focused on contemporary plays, film, and television.

This class included script analysis, rehearsal procedures, and improvisation. The goal is to move beyond conventional choices and use Method Acting techniques to develop a more artistic and authentic characterization of the scenes.

Master Class with David Lee Strasberg

Son of famed Lee Strasberg, David, is the Chairman of The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. David teaches Method Acting workshops internationally in India and Moscow, as well as throughout the United States.

 

The Master Class with David Strasberg focused on a few of the more in-depth exercises his father developed like Emotional Memory. Students had the rare opportunity to get first-hand knowledge from David Strasberg about Method Acting and how to apply it in their day-to-day life.

Casting Director Workshop with Thomas Sullivan
