NEW TO ACTING? Replace your fear with confidence. In this safe space you’ll LEARN HOW TO TAKE RISKS, TRUST YOURSELF and to be guided by the relationship rather than the ‘story’ or the ‘character’. An introduction to the Haber Philosophy™ and Haber Phrasing™. Learn the basics of auditioning.
FOR ACTORS WITH NO EXPERIENCE or training or who are transitioning from modeling, athletics, dancing and even the corporate world into acting. This class is perfect for directors or producers who want to understand the acting process.
EXPAND YOUR IMAGINATION and learn the importance of discovering specifics to CREATE A CHARACTER and how they help you focus on the other person instead of yourself. GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD and INTO THE RELATIONSHIP. With more challenging scripts, this intensive will delve deeper into creating a life, and the audition process will be explored more thoroughly.
FOR STUDENTS WITH SOME TRAINING (college, etc.) and experience such as commercials, student films and shorts.
Dig deeper into your core using SPECIFICS and IMAGINATION. Discover more COMPLEX, CHALLENGING material while still TAKING RISKS and living in the moment (and your body). Lean into the discomfort (and excitement) of the unknown as we explore both the creative and practical challenges of complex auditions. Continue to explore the Haber Phrasing™.
FOR PROFESSIONAL WORKING ACTORS with prior training and experience including co-stars, leads in Independents, and professional theater experience.
“A truly transformative experience”, Margie’s intensive ‘weekend’ takes you on a JOURNEY AS A HUMAN BEING as well as an actor. Margie lovingly and thoroughly teaches you how to bring the BEST OF YOU into a CREATIVE EXPERIENCE. She guides you AWAY FROM ANY TECHNICAL APPROACH into a world of instinctually creating a specific life. You’ll learn how use your imagination to create ‘scenes’ (slices of life) that are not in the script so you can FULL OWN THE CHARACTER.
There’s no more fear of performing when you live each life fully. The Haber Phrasing™ is explored thoroughly to support relationship and need and to help you live in the unknown.
Instead of trying impress the casting director, you’ll FIND YOUR POWER AGAIN. Through the use of specifics, you’ll create full characters for auditioning, cold reading and on set roles in theater, film and TV. Get OUT OF YOUR SAFE ZONE and risk to be seen.
FOR PROFESSIONAL WORKING ACTORS – guest stars, recurring, series regulars, and feature films.
EXPLORE BEYOND the cold read and strengthen what you learned in the intensive. DEEPER CREATIVE EXPLORATIONS include: more detailed script breakdown to support creating more COMPLEX CHARACTERS, working with multiple ‘scenes’ and full scripts, preparing for cold reads, callbacks and shoots…all while still creating characters QUICKLY, SPECIFICALLY, and THOROUGHLY. Practical explorations may include the challenges of audition and on set experiences.
ONLY AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS WHO HAVE TAKEN AN INTENSIVE AT THE STUDIO, each level has it’s own ongoing classes and prepares you to move through the studio program to Margie’s Master Weekend.
