The Fusion of Personal Experience and Imagination
In Personalization I, an eclectic variety of techniques are used to help the actor find what allows him/her to discover and bring his/her most personal, authentic, and unique self to the work.
The fusion of personal experiences and imagination is what allows an actor to fully personalize the work. The awareness, clarity, and connectedness of the actor’s mind, heart, and body are essential in bringing a fictional character to a complex, spontaneous, and compelling life. As actors, we examine the human heart and human behavior from our personal perspectives, which always includes personal experiences and our imagination. They can’t be separated. This class will lead the actor to more fully understand concepts/tools, ‘transference’ (‘substitution’), and when and how to use this tool of ‘transference’ effectively.
