Event Details

Join us for a one-night master class in acting taught by Ernest Briggs. All members of the Native community as all levels of experience are encouraged to attend.
About the class:
Theater demands that we perform in front of crowd in a heightened reality. But how does one take the words that have been provided to us and the plot the writer has given us and create a portrayal that not only honors what the writer has envisioned, but is also 100% authentic to the character as well as to the performer? Using a combination of contemporary acting techniques you can give life to your performances that makes the final rendering of your portrayal stronger as well as makes it much more interesting for the audience.
Reserve your spot by emailing Rhiana at info@newnativetheatre.org 
by Tuesday, June 22, 2016. Only 12 students admitted.
