01/22/2012

SCENE STUDY with John Ross Clark!!

Get your Scene Study on this February with Play Club West!  Play Club member and living legend, John Ross Clark, will teach you how to become a ninja master at Scene Work, in only four class sessions. We hope you’ll join us, as you’ll definitely come out of this a better actor!

“My work is based on the precepts of moment to moment, in the moment acting, as espoused by Robert Cohen in his text Acting Power.

It combines the work of Adler (active imagination), Strasberg (emotional memory), Hagen (sense memory), Meisner (listen and react), and Alfred Molina (classical) into a comprehensive approach to the craft. The focus is on training your instincts to find the correct response in an emotional construct, and learning to trust those instincts as a human being. Basically, it’s about learning to get out of your own way.

More importantly, it’s about finding your voice and refining your instincts to reach an emotional truth. It’s intensive scene study in a safe emotional environment.”
