    VIDA Series (Honor) - Part 1

    This is a three part series around the primary topics of our upcoming Spanish Golden Age show, “Life Is A Dream” (La Vida Es Sueno). Kevin, Alesha and Janine have the word “Honor”. This is one of the primary principles of our three characters. We discuss what honor means to us, we talk about how we prepared and developed “Life Is A Dream”, our characters and their backstory. Each eppisode we will also introduce you to each of the charaters and give you access to their backstory! Heres three of them:

    Astolfo - https://www.11minutestheatre.com/astolfo
    Segismundo - https://www.11minutestheatre.com/segismundo
    Estrella - https://www.11minutestheatre.com/estrella

    I’m the next two parts, we will discuss “Vengeance” and “Mysticism Vs. Religion” with the other four actors from our show.

    Topic: The Anti Method (The method to our madness)

    Topic: The Anti Method (The method to our madness)

    If you aren’t a method actor, what kind of actor are you? Laurence Olivier famously said to method actor Dustin Hoffmen “Why don’t you try acting?”. He is referring to what is commonly known as Classical acting. Classical acting is an umbrella term describing the philosophy of acting that integrations many techniques, including some that stem from method acting. We talk about these techniques, demonstrate some of them, and have a few laughs along the way.

    No Kevins Quiz Corner this episode because for the last couple we feel we have cheated you out of what our core foundational believe is about theatre. our PROCESS. we HAD to include it this time. We've tried as best we can to demonstrate some process work using just our voices. Hey...maybe we need to start putting these on YouTube??? Any VOTES?

    Topic: The Method (Method Acting)

    Topic: The Method (Method Acting)

    What is “Method Acting” a.k.a. “The Method”? Some say it’s for crazy people, some say it’s unnecessary if your a good actor, some say, it’s realism and how real relatable characters are successfully brought to life….Whatever your opinion or "method" is, we’re going to dive in and talk about it, debate it and try to get to the core of it. Maybe you’ll appreciate it more. Maybe less. Or maybe you dont give a rats rear and just want an hour with three of your favorite people :)
