“The Barrow Group was really the acting institution that taught me how to act.  I worked with the best teachers…Lee Brock and Seth Barrish, who taught me why less is really more.”
—Anne Hathaway, Academy Award Nominee

How the Workshops are Structured
·  Saturday 10-1 pm: intro to barrow group acting technique, including changing the paradigm, lying exercise, silent improv

·  Saturday 2-5pm:  a particular approach to script analysis—techniques for picking out the fundamental story structure and arriving at simple actionable things to do that tell the story and free the actor.

Sunday 10-1 pm:  the barrow group tools (part 1)– detailed description of on-the-job tools designed to maximize spontaneity and improve your storytelling

Sunday 2-5 pm:  the barrow group tools (part 2)—continued description of on-the-job tools designed to maximize spontaneity and improve your storytelling, plus tools geared towards classical text

*if you could come in with a monologue learned by heart, this would help facilitate the process– American contemporary realism (no more than 3 minutes in length)– if you like, you could also bring in a scene–contact us ahead of time we’ll hook you up with a scene partner
