Sound of Silence with Tim Stoltenberg

Saturday, January 20: This 2 Hour class costs $35.00 and meets at Theatre 99 (280 Meeting Street)

Silence is a powerful tool in improv, but often when silence appears in a scene actors get anxiety that the scene has stopped and it looks like the actors don’t know what to say or do next. This workshop will focus on what is really going on in those moments of silence and how to become confident in using the silence. Using techniques from mime, clowning, and buffoonery the actor will explore how to use physical action to state and explore the character’s emotion and the emotion of the scene. When actors create a character with a strong point of view the character can dwell alone in a scene and not feel the pressure of having to do “something funny.” We learn to be confident in our character and in the silence. Actors will learn to identify moments in a scene where we don’t need to speak but let the silence speak for the emotion. In silence we can use physical action to heighten and explore the tension and emotions in the scene.
