The Actor’s Dilemma

Weekend Workshop
with Ted Pugh and Bethany Caputo

What is actable? How can I best meet the demands of my director?
So often actors find themselves being given a direction that is, quite simply, un-actable. Perhaps the direction is too intellectual; perhaps it is too much of an “idea.” Ultimately, as actors, we are looking for a process to engage in, an activity that enlivens us. In this workshop, we will explore how to navigate un-actable directions, and perhaps find our way to actable choices using the tools offered us by Michael Chekhov. – A workshop for actors, who have prior experience with this technique.
