Heartbreak and Rage: Delivering Nuanced Emotional Performances

One of the key areas that separates great performances from good ones is the ability to deliver nuance and depth, especially when dealing with extreme emotions. Rarely does full-on anger or mania or sobbing deliver authenticity. It's the movement between melancholy and distress, between disgust and frustration, and from ecstasy to reflection to optimistic joy. That's what we're going to discuss and demonstrate. You'll better understand the difference in the mind shift between delivering various emotions in macro versus the micro of consistently adding depth and nuance, even to short prompts and scenes that aren't written particularly deep. You'll get insight into how to be constantly thinking and creating, even between roles and auditions. And you'll better understand how to approach and break down a script so that it informs your acting as a loose guide instead of a rigid form.
