Using a numbers system is a simple and fast way to manage character complexity and control the drama - sounds counterintuitive for an actor, doesn't it? But it works. It is a powerfully simple tool that will amaze you with the results it produces..

Richard knows his stuff. He knows what actors must do to be real and he will explain it in simple terms that you can use now.

Getting your choices into the ballpark is the first step for the actor. Once you have done that, understanding the value of numbers for the actor can help you stay there.
And on top of that, using numerical values can help you make fine adjustments to a performance. They can also clarify the communications between actor and director.
Richard Sarell is one of the best teachers of acting. The world is lucky to have him in it and I’m so happy I found The Rehearsal Room. Wish I found it years ago! Time and money well spent!

LEARN TO GENERATE PERFORMANCES THAT ARE CREATIVELY PLAYFUL and CONVINCINGLY REAL
Explore techniques that have been 35 years in development. They bring a new clarity and functionality to acting technique.
Explore techniques that not only effectively deliver creative choices for the actor but also enable you to measure the chances of success.
THIS IS FOR YOU IF...
- Clear and logical explanations work for you
- An acting adventure is always fun
- You love being involved with the development of new ideas
- Understanding more about the actors and directors skill is your passion
- Feel you often fall into the same traps
- Often aren't clear about your choices so you just wing it.
IF YOU DON’T HAVE THESE SKILLS …
- rather than being relaxed at tackling new ideas you will be stressed
- you could restrict your openness to new processes
- applying yourself to unusual tasks will be challenging
- making the obvious choice will become a more regular trap
- you won't be confident about floating an unusual idea
- the same mistakes will continue to occur
Over his twenty-five year directing career Richard found that that there were many unusual behaviours that he would have to encourage actors to adopt for their character. One thing became quickly plain. No matter how odd the behaviour was there was always a conscious or unconscious reason driving it. Everything happened for a reason.
Working out how and why unusual behaviours occurred was fascinating. Then learning to translate that knowledge into acting technique was another fascinating challenge. He became very skilled at it.
Actors have to do the same thing. On some occasions they too are confronted by the unusual and have to start from scratch to work out a practical way to apply a new understanding to a performance.
This webinar will also therefore explore learning how to learn.
