Types of Workshops

THE OPEN WORKSHOPS
(open to all actors, dancers, singers, writers, directors, etc.) Acting Workshops are generally two weeks (10 days, M-F), seven hours a day. All levels, from beginner to award-winning highly experienced film and stage actors, are welcome in a non-competitive yet demanding environment.

INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOPS
…are generally two days, seven hours per day. We focus on technique, particularly sense memory and its application to script material, to give the actor new to our technique a taste of what the work entails and what may be possible to achieve.

VIRTUOSI MASTER CLASS WORKSHOPS
…are held once a year in a castle, fortress, monastery or other historical site. The actors are invited by Robert and Alejandra. To be eligible, an actor must have taken at least four full workshops with IT New York, so that they thoroughly understand and can practice our technique.

ON-CAMERA WORKSHOPS
… are generally nine days, seven hours per day. The location is at a retreat in a rural area, allowing the actors to pursue their training with no distractions, in a community atmosphere like a real film company on location. Four seasoned professionals, a director, a cinematographer, an acting coach and a line producer provide the instruction. Meals cooked by a Cordon Bleu chef.

AFDAS WORKSHOPS
(France only) are three weeks, M-F seven hours per day. They are like the Open Workshops in structure, but with an additional week they become even more intense, the actors going to deeper places in their characters. Ten places in the workshop are reserved for Afdas (or Pole Emploi) - eligible professional performers, though we always save a few places for non-Afdas participants. Scenes and instruction in English and French. Limited enrollment.

méthodologie

The Process

Although there is no prior training necessary the actor will be helped in integrating their experience or training (no matter what style) into our technique, and then expanding into imaginative work, engaging the actor in a process leading to a total connection to the character, the circumstances and the dilemma. The actor then arrives at the point where the ego and self-consciousness evaporate, the imagination is freed, and the character is fully embodied.

Each actor will be working on a scene and a monologue, always from great writers. We provide the scripts and pair the actor with a scene partner before the workshop starts. The actors have the opportunity of getting on stage several times with their scenes during the course of the workshop. The scenes are worked on experientially. For this reason, text analysis is not done as a sitting-down academic exercise, but rather as an ongoing discovery of the life of the character and the world of the play or film.
