9 - 14 OCTOBER 2023 | CRETE
A MASTERCLASS RESIDENCY WITH YORGOS KARAMALEGOS
Ready to take your acting
to the next level?
Through a supportive environment, we will share embodiment techniques as invaluable tools for cultivating presence and shedding societal influences.
For this residency, our focus will be on shedding acting habits that have been deeply ingrained through social and cultural conditioning.
As part of this goal we are introducing the Mentorship part of the residency, and we are excited to offer exclusive lectures and Q&A sessions that delve deeper into the key themes of presence, deconditioning, and individual habits. These sessions are designed to offer deep insights into the nuances of presence, and learn effective strategies to transform individual acting habits.
The ultimate goal of this retreat is to delve into a performing state where your body, mind (both conscious and subconscious), emotions, and instincts converge harmoniously. Together, we will navigate the intricacies of the present moment, unlocking a dynamic and authentic expression that transcends traditional acting norms.
Embrace this opportunity to connect with a community of like-minded individuals, fostering a collective journey of artistic exploration and self-discovery.
How can I build a defining career?
With so many actors, how can I stand out at my next audition?
Can I find more presence in my performances?
We will answer all these questions and more in the following chapters of this Masterclass
Career coaching & action planning
Work with Yorgos to identify your strengths, areas for improvement, and career goals. From there, you will create a personalized action plan to help you achieve your objectives, including developing a strong personal brand, identifying your unique selling points, and creating a standout resume and portfolio. He'll also help you develop strategies for networking, auditioning, and landing roles.
This chapter prepares you to be casting ready, providing exercises to help you improve your audition skills and increase your chances of landing roles.
This chapter helps you build the mental resilience and emotional strength you need to thrive as an artist. Yorgos works with you to resolve any recurring issues or mental patterns that may be hindering your progress on stage, in rehearsals, or on set. He'll help you develop coping strategies for managing stress and anxiety, and will provide a safe and supportive space for you to work through any emotional blocks or challenges you may be experiencing.
