An Actor Prepares with Karin Trachtenberg

 

An Actor Prepares - musicians and singers practice scales, dancers warm-up at the barre, but how does the actor tune-up their "instrument"? Staying centered, relaxed and connected to the imagination is enhanced with a daily actors workout routine. This workshop will introduce exercises and techniques for preparing the voice, body and mind for rehearsal and performance.  We will explore listening and responding as part of an ensemble, as well as approaching character development through physical expression. Please come in comfortable clothes for moving.

 

Karin Trachtenberg has over 30 years of experience in the theater as an actor, director, teacher, producer and arts administrator. She holds a masters degree in Expressive Arts Therapy from Lesley University and attended drama school in London. Karin has taught theater and arts education at Clark University, Lesley University’s Creative Arts in Education Program, Pine Manor College and The Schauspiel Gemainschaft in Zurich Switzerland. She has performed at various theater venues throughout the Boston area including Zeitgeist Stage, Roxbury Rep, The Providence Fringe Festival, Newton Nomadic, Newton Theater Company, 4th Wall Stage, Stageloft Rep, Fort Point Theater Channel, Marblehead Little Theatre and Open Theatre Project. She is currently enrolled in the Master Teacher certification program with legendary voice and Shakespeare coach Patsy Rodenburg.  Read more about Karin at: www.karintrachtenberg.com
