About this masterclass:
No great work of art history was created without the corresponding craft or skill, and this also applies to acting. In order to entice people to watch and listen it is important to know your tools of the trade. Greta will research a kaleidoscope of different approaches with the participants and create an overall picture of the opportunities on the market.
With Greta’s well-known knowledge and interest in the well-being of actors and their artistic progress, you are sure to be supported, inspired and energized to propel your career forward!
All 6 sessions include Q&As, talks, interactive exercises, networking and marketing strategies, professional insider advice and tips, business knowledge, and do’s and dont´s. Mandatory homework will be given in and after each unit, which is intended as a basis for playful artistic consultation and individual guidance by Greta for the duration of the masterclass.
27.09. + 04.10.2023 from 6 to 8 p.m. CET Berlin:
“Acting as a business“: Greta will briefly introduce her work, and the three different thematic blocks of this masterclass: “Acting as a business”, “Acting as art” and “Acting as a craft” in the first session on the 08thof September. She then will explore the issues of the artists professional development, perspectives, goals and motivation of the participants. The artists will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with their peers and professionally prepare for the challenges of entering the European film industry.
11.10. + 18.10.2023 from 6 to 8p.m. CET Berlin
“Acting as art”: Greta Amend would constantly encourage you to ask questions, not only about your character and your performance but about who you really are as an actor. Her exercise “Performing Questions” allows to strengthen your artistic muscle, to encounter other arts in an inspired, informed and stimulated way, to improve your skills and inner artistic weight, and to develop your personality with knowledge in order to establish acting as a mastery.
25.10.+ 01.11.2023 from 6 to 8p.m. CET Berlin
“Acting as a craft”: When we watch great actors play their games and how they pull aces from their sleeves, we ask ourselves: How do they do that? What’s their game? Great storytellers all know how to inspire and delight the audience! This part is a hands-on exploration of pitching techniques and playful storytelling in the realm of the arts.
