Daniel Darwin Holds Workshop On Scene Study, Character Analysis
Manila, Philippines--Sixteen Bars, a performing arts education company catering to theater practitioners in the country, will conduct "Truth & Transformation: An [eight session] Intensive Workshop On Scene Study And Character Analysis with Daniel Darwin," an alumnus of New York University (NYU), in March 2019. The workshop's venue is at Silver Pod (2F East Capitol Drive corner Santa Clara, Kapitolyo, Pasig City).
The goals of any actor are two-fold; to tell the truth and to transform. These goals are simple to describe and endlessly challenging to achieve. But that challenge, that dare... that's the pearl of the craft. It keeps us going deeper, coming back, picking up the script again and again.
Darwin will lead a group of up to 16 participants through a dialectic approach to character development and scene study. Participants will bring in one song or monologue of their choosing, and one two-person scene from any play they would like to explore. Through a series of exercises, games, and facilitated peer-to-peer critiques and discussions, students will hone their focus and ability to derive, understand, and convey the truths of their characters.
Students will be led to plot, experiment with, and perform the necessary transformations out of who they are and into who they play. The students will explore acting in dialogue, to further their understanding of reaction and response on stage.
Lastly, the workshop will focus on developing a safe space for giving and receiving peer criticism so as to continuously better the actor's method and craft.
This workshop is open to intermediate and advanced actors with training in any methodology. The one requirement: you must be ready to let go of the safety railing and Dive. The. F*ck. In. Sound good to you? Then Let's Do This!
Darwin studied theater, playwriting, visual arts, circus arts, and philosophy at NYU's Gallatin School for Individualized Study--he graduated magna cum laude. His full-length experimental works have been featured at Fringe Manila, Sipat Lawin's Karnabal Festival, and Japan Foundation's 1SA Solo Arts Platform.
