STUDIO M, METHOD ACTING TECHNIQUE – APR. 4-25 - Studio M is seeking participants for a method-acting technique workshop. Instructor states: "To teach is to learn, and what a great gift it is to have the privilege to work with students from different backgrounds and paths of life. Actors, directors, writers etc. I believe method acting is something everyone and anyone can benefit from, regardless of whether they are interested in acting, or just want to feel more secure in social situations, in their work, and in themselves. Acting helps to integrate the unknown parts of ourselves, paving the way to vivid, gutsy, and real behavior. In such a way we discover the worthy and all-encompassing human being, with the good and the bad, unapologetic in our humanity and what we have to give through it. The process of acting is an inspirational one; it teaches us, transforms us, and guides us to be better on stage, on film, and also in life. "I am a lifetime member of The Actors Studio where I had the honor to learn from people like Ellen Burstyn, Harvey Keitel, Al Pacino, Lee Grant, Elizabeth Kemp. Having come to New York from Transylvania, Romania, having received my MFA from the Actors Studio Drama School, I have learned a lot about myself, as an actress, as a teacher and therefore as a human being.
