About Bob’s Classes . . .

“The objective is to prepare actors . . .
– to be physically spontaneous and uninhibited.
(trusting the body’s instinctive, pre-socialized responses)
– to be vocally accomplished.
(doing ALL the work for the listener: every spoken sound to every ear)
– to be emotionally accessible.
(allow ALL emotions to co-exist ~ don’t pick and choose)
Combined, these skills can enable an actor to steer the audience’ eyes and thoughts.”

Each acting class begins with a group exercise which supports and/or builds upon the ideal of partnership and/or ensemble. When scene work, or monologue work, is presented in class, the work is shown, notes are given by Bob and then by the rest of the class. All students, observing the work in class, are encouraged to recognize techniques, methods and notes that were successfully applied by their classmate(s), and to clearly articulate their positive feedback. An actor may be assigned individuated exercises, addressing specific issues.

***((Re-discovering and free-ing one’s pre-socialized impulses is the core of CLOWN work. In acting classes, you will be, tangentially, introduced to some of the concepts of CLOWN work.  To address any curiosity you may have regarding your own ‘Unique Little Creature Waiting Inside You’ . . . . ‘That Generator of All Things Exciting, Important & FUN’ . . . . ‘That Creative Energy Yearning to Burst Forth’ . . . . A CLOWN Workshop will be offered 2-4 times per year.))
