The imagination is a powerful tool for actors to create character and connect to the depths of the circumstances. In the Imagination Workshop we will exercise our imagination and explore how to use the imagination more specifically, particularly in the creation of character and the connecting to the circumstances of the script.
The actors will work on assigned characters where they will explore the uses of the imagination and how to use it more specifically:
- The creation of the place
- Connecting memory to props
- Use of the imagination in creating costume
- Creation of specific memory that moves the actor
The class will finish with the performance of monologues.

This introductory class will help actors create elements of their own technique for understanding how to experience nuanced, believable, work on camera.
