Rhythm in the Art of Acting with Mercedes Ruehl


Held in-person in Fall 2022: 

There is music and rhythm in everything we do and everything we say. Often the success of a scene or entire play or film relies on the adherence to an intrinsic beat, an intrinsic music. In this 5-week acting and scene study workshop for professional performers, you will practice scene study and acting principles through exercises that tap into the rhythm and beat of your body, the text, the moment, your scene partner, and the artistic creation as a whole.
