"Transformation in Creating a Character"
(The Divine, the Material,

Violence & the Irrational

in Character Development)

 Emmy nominated Actor & Acting Coach

Michael Margotta

Acting, writing, directing are all processes of discovery. You have to be willing to say, “We are all here to undergo a communion, to find out what the hell is going on in this World.” If you are not willing to say that, what you get is entertainment instead of Art, and poor entertainment at that. In this course we want to help Actors to think about human behavior in dramatic terms.

We need new scenarios that raise moral, psychological and social questions. Actors must feel the responsibility to find the harmonious relationship of content and form. This is a gigantic problem with every character an Actor works on and every script a Director directs.

The purpose is to explore new narratives through character development, considering shape, structure, focus, intention and logic by raising moral, psychological, social questions. Each session features exercises; to listen, to concentrate, to flex our muscles, to help us use our intuition and think instantly. You will act & improvise, work on the characters biography and your instrument, your body.

Leave the seminar with a roadmap on how to build your dream character and shape your own new scene picking up the pen yourself!

In the end we want characters who are real and alive and believable, exploring all aspects of writing in the process: research, content, context, conflict, action, dramatic premise, genre, structure, dialogue. Acting is writing in the movies and in theater.
