With SUSAN BATSON (New York, USA)
in Berlin, 18. February – 22. February 2019 // 25. February – 1. March 2019
Susan Batson worked as actress, stage manager, casting director, producer and personal coach of Juliette Binoche, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and others. Susan Batson had her first big success in the musical ‘Hair’ at the end of the sixties, followed by many Broadway Shows, films, television and theatre, where she acted with partners like Paul Newman and Sophia Loren. Susan Batson is author of the acting book Truth: Personas, Needs, and Flaws in the Art of Building Actors and Creating Characters (Kidman wrote the foreword).
Susan Batson uses the „Method“as a flexible tool which she applies specifically to the students and their needs. She concentrates on the specific problems of the actor’s expression, on connecting intimacy and universality to artistic expression. This precise way of working expands the range of the individual possibilities. The emphasis will be on the work on scenes and monologues and on „audition training“, with scripts changing from day to day. The analytical part of the actor’s work consist of the emotional work starts:
„You are responsible to create a functioning, speaking, thinking and feeling person. Imagine the real life of the person. Design a biography of your character. Make a list of what you like and dislike about the character. Find out what you appreciate and understand concerning your character. And then decide how you are going to express your view and communicate it to the audience.“
