"At The Rehearsal Room ... I was able to quickly overcome my long held misconceptions about what acting is and was ushered into a place of freedom, spontaneity and connection with the scene."
As with all elements of acting the real issues are how to find a balance for all the ingredients. Improvisation is no different.
Improvisation is not only a useful performance technique it is also a great preparation technique.
Understanding the value of improvisation is important to guiding you in your choices of how to use it.
Being comfortable with dialogue is the key to being free and believable - but when is it too much and when is it too little
Understanding how to be loose with your performance is the path to overcoming fear - stop judging and be free
If you are new to The Rehearsal Room this is a great opportunity to find out about these highly productive techniques and test out how they work for you.
Richard first discovered the core values of this technique when he was directing drama at the ABC in Melbourne in 1984. In an actor/director workshop run by the marvelous teacher Murray Hutchinson a simple, clear and common sense approach to Constantine Stanislavski’s theories was explained. Richard was captivated by the wonderful practicality of this approach and immediately started exploring it. He also began using it as the foundation of his directing techniques.
Kyahl Anderson has been studying The Rehearsal Room acting process for 5 years. He is totally on top of the theory and is so practiced at using it as an actor that he had 10 call backs for 10 consecutive auditions in 2017.
Besides working effectively as an actor he is being regularly hired as a director because he is consistently delivering performances and productions that work. Kyahl has a recent short film that has been accepted into film festivals all over the world. And he has been teaching all levels of classes at The Rehearsal Room for 12 months and has received outstanding commendations from the actors he has instructed.
