Educational Program

Introductory lesson to get to know the topic and the teacher, starting from what will turn out to be the information in the class's possession.

The purely theoretical lesson will introduce the topic and the teacher, starting from what will turn out to be the information in the class's possession and finally to pull the strings of the discourse and leave the students a series of practical indications useful for their entry into the world of work: artistic material to send, how to introduce yourself, research and relationship with an agency, search for auditions, first work experiences, etc.

Aspects that will be dealt with in the classroom:

  • Vision of the short film Emilie Muller
  • Exercise of the bag to replicate the work with objects that act as a stimulus for the actor's emotional work
  • Exercise of questions
  • Work on the text: the right questions to ask
  • Work on the stage: from improvisation to the scene adhering to the text. I work on being true
  • observation of the work and considerations

Material used: texts for film samples (scenes from Silvio Soldini's film).

The main objective is to provide essential information in view of entering the world of work as aware as possible. Furthermore, it is interesting that the students have a vision of the possible methods of approach to acting, so that they choose the one that best suits them and are also ready to respond to the needs posed by the various directors / casting directors with whom they will be confronted.
