What factors make you “the most powerful actor on the stage?” What are “the two most fundamental responsibilities of the actor?” Why do actors love eye contact “more than people do?” Is it possible to increase your accessibility by 75%? And what is the “three second rule?” In short: How can you improve your “presence?”
Through a series of live, hands-on exercises, Tim Mooney (drawing from his popular book, Acting at the Speed of Life, Conquering Theatrical Style) explores the fundamental nature of language and bridges the gap between the classics and our modern sense of realism, demonstrating the distinction between “realism” and “believability,” while finding the modern connection to theatrical conventions that bring them alive.  Exercises from The MisanthropeHamletTartuffe and The Bourgeois Gentleman help knock down the “wall of words” that stand between ourselves and classical drama. “Your asides will never be the same!”
