“WHEN THE ACTOR ARE PRESENT AND RELAXED THE PERFORMANCE IS FULLY BELIEVABLE AND AUTHENTIC.”

ReFocus Method takes away ‘the nonsense’ and revealing your true self and power as an actor. The result is a fully believable and authentic performance, in nearly no time of preparation.

You will develop a “sixth sense” for identifying and letting go of tensions in the body, particularly in the face. You will learn how to stay focused on the objective and/or the other character.

You will learn how “get out of your head”, let go of your judgmental thinking and striving towards a deeper self- knowledge to discover something beyond your own control and personal blockages.

It is fun, challenging and transforming – this workshop will not only change the way you look at acting, but also at life itself. Living and acting with authenticity.

Where does it come from?
The origin of Refocus Method was created by Andris Blekte in the 1960s in Sweden. Andris taught his technique at the National Acting Academy in Sweden for 30 years.

Setup
The workshop consists of two full days. The first day (Saturday) will we work with exercises on how to identify and let go of tension and explore the power of directing our attention to something in the doing. Further we will work with short text and situations to bring this experience in to a performance situation. There will be both group exercises as well as individual.

The second day (Sunday) we will work with text and scenes (prepared in advanced).

“…all the participants were pleasantly surprised when, as if from nowhere, their performances gained a new depth and truthfulness…”

“…also very helpful if you head into auditions, or if the director changes his mind and wants a completely different thing from you.”

“…points perfectly well out how you can reach by lesser means and efforts a tremendous effect. His approach is sharp (no escapes possible) but gently…”
