master class at New York Theater Workshop
IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU
April 15, 2012
Instructor: Alan Rickman, moderated by Jack Doulin NYTW Casting Director
When Jim Nicola invited Alan Rickman to do a master class here at NYTW, Alan responded that he would prefer the event be more of a discussion with a group of young actors rather than a class per se.
Thirty actors with differing perspectives and levels of experience gathered for a free dialogue, proceeding from a video of the deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie on the art of listening and punctuated with scene work prepared by some of the participants guided by Mr. Rickman.
