The Actor Author

by Manuel Ortiz


Actors are one of the main creators in the scene. Sometimes, depending on the style, they are the most important creator.

We will work with different creative strategies and dynamics to give the actor the skills to create scene material for his or her character.

The workshop will focus on the action as the main component in the actor’s performance.

Actions are for actors as notes are for musicians.


Session 1. The Nature of an Action.

Action as a re-action. The action’s layers: narrative layer, dynamic layer, emotional layer.

Action & situation. The 6 questions (What, Where, When, Why, Who and How).


Session 2. Sources for Building an Action.

Alchemy of the action. Different sources for building an action: Paintings, pictures, memories, etc.


Session 3. My Personal Action.

Developing a scene from an action created with personal material from each student.


Session 4. From the Action to the Stage

Working on the scenes developed as a possible new play.
