Educational Series: Extravert Acting: The Outside-In Method

  • Polanentheater 174 Polanenstraat Amsterdam, NH, 1013 WC Netherlands (map)

This workshop is an introduction and gives the participants an opportunity to explore how to create and develop a character by starting from the
outside. The outside-in approach describes what the character looks like: height/weight; hair/skin/eye color; voices indications; other superficial indicators like clothing, job, wealth/status. The actor must use and work on the physicality of the character in order to understand who he is and what his feelings and thoughts are. This can be an excellent start for character development.

Yvonne Gillisen is a freelance actress (drama, education), theatre-director and writer (litterature, drama). She studied Theatre (directing in Amsterdam, Theatre school HBO, 1983-1985) with an emphasis in Method acting (1986-1989),  explored Dancing, did a lot of body-mind- work and research in various acting fields.
