moments of truth
The ReFocus Method is a systematic approach for developing a “sixth sense” of identifying and letting go of tension in the body and becoming aware where focus shall be directed. It enables the actor to create a strong and believable performance within a remarkably short preparation period.
The most important thing for an actor or singer is to portray the truth, to move with the truth, to deliver a text as true. To get there, the performer needs to be able let go of self judgments, personal tensions, striving toward a deep self-knowledge, to find something beyond their control, tensions and blockages. The actor’s tools, their instrument, is the body, the five senses, the muscles that create movement, big movements, small ones like in the face - tension and relaxation. The five senses also inhabit the body. With the help of these senses and our conscious thinking (conscious choice), we can direct focus, place attention to something specific, and thus become present.
