The Flow of Acting/The Power of the Actor:
Executive Producer and LAB founder, Owen Robertson, takes students on a journey that will deepen their craft as well as provide process for a life-long practice as an actor. He combines theories from optimal experience psychology and the Chubbuck technique of acting to give students a unique learning experience that will deepen their understanding of text, character, and emotional connection for any actor at any level along their journey. Through a nurturing collaborative learning environment, Mr. Robertson seeks to help artists grow in their craft by working in small classes focused on growing technique, artistry, and mindset. The result for students is a powerful transformative experience that will deepen their practice as theater artists. Classes are held on Sundays from 6 PM to 8:30 PM for twelve weeks.
