Audition Technique:
Self-Tape Clinic

The time to perfect the self-tape process isn't the day before that big audition is due! The self-tape clinic is one component of our strategy for empowering our students to be as brilliant in their self-taped auditions as they are in their in-class scene work.

Tuesdays 2x/Month (Patrick)
5 PM to 8 PM

Zoom 

Non-Students: $125
Students: $75

A 2x-a-month class designed to help students level-up their self-tapes in the virtual age of casting. Students will be assigned audition material from currently-casting TV and film projects, tasked with submitting a self-tape before each class. During our sessions, we will review tapes, addressing what is effective or not—both in terms of performance and the technical aspects of recording—and rework the scenes. Additionally, we share & analyze tapes that booked jobs and look at what sets them apart.

Fridays (Meera)
11 AM to 3 PM
In-Person


Monthly Price: $275 

By fusing clown work with traditional scene study, we let things spill out.  We shed the "shoulds" and "should nots". We shed expectations and rules and embrace the curious, fearless, and beautiful YOU. 

It's a mixed level class, perfect for beginners, and enticing for the advanced, wise, or those who feeling stuck in the work. Break the chains by welcoming your disaster.

Zoom

Pay What You Can

The Creative Lab is a four-week online class​; a​reas of exploration include Active Analysis, the Creative State, the Five Questions, and Creative Tasks. Whether you're a seasoned artist, a relative newbie, or ​anywhere in between, The Creative Lab will help your work become more engaged, creative, personal, and alive.

Acting As Disaster

In this scene study class, we will approach our work using both traditional acting tools AND the principles of clown.  By welcoming disaster, we aim to find what is hiding in the depth of ourselves, clamoring to play.

What Students Say about The Creative Lab:

"Learning the basic tenets of Stanislavski's Active Analysis in Lab has completely changed the way I rehearse. It's become more about exploring, experimenting, and playing as opposed to getting it right. Process over outcome."
