Playing Physical Conditions

This 1-day class will teach you how to master Physical/Sensory conditions!

In your acting career, you will no doubt be asked to play specific & demanding physical conditions whether it’s for auditions, on stage, or on camera. Being believable in these circumstances may be the difference between you booking (and keeping!) that role, and mastering physical & sensory work is what can make the difference between a forgettable performance, and truly great acting.

Many actors don’t know how to approach these conditions correctly, so these conditions become obstacles in the way of your best work.

But there are unique tools for playing each of these common sensory conditions to keep you on track. In this class, Howard will teach you the details of each condition including common mistakes, how to prepare, and specific exercises to help you master each one.

This class will cover many of the following conditions:

– Drunk
– Tired
– Asleep/ Woken Up
– In pain
– Pregnant
– Panic Attacks
– Hot
– Blind
– Clothing Restrictions (period pieces)
– Cold
– Nauseous
– Differently Abled
– Headache
– Dying
– Darkness
– Hungover
and more!

How it works:
Each performing participant will be cast in a scene that calls for one or more sensory conditions and will be required to film a self-tape of the scene prior to class.

Please note: Participants are expected to follow specific self-taping instructions and should be prepared to re-tape prior to class if necessary and asked to do so (with further instruction).

* Upon registration, please make sure to communicate if there are any conditions you are not comfortable playing for this class. Participants will be asked to submit a resume, headshot and their age range for casting purposes. Please email these materials to becky@howardfine.com upon registering for the class.
