Fall Semester with Andrew Grenier
Grades 9 - 12
Part I: September 13th
10:00 - 2:00 pm
Each session will deal with the personal craft of the artist: commitment, courage, discipline (personal and professional agreements), and discovery. In short, “Who am I? Where am I going? How am I going to get there?” We will all strive to provoke critical thought and honest emotion, to embrace ourselves body and soul. Theatre “games,” movement exercises, character exploration, and the embrace of all the arts (and artists) will be incorporated into each session.
In deference to the nature of this particular approach to the craft, the following perspectives, as well as many others, will be a part of each and every session:
“The actor is an athlete of the heart.” ~ Antonin Artaud
“Art is risk made visible.” ~ Arno Rafael Minkkinen
