Pinky Amador, Bill Atwood Hold Master Class in Acting for Professional ActorsBy Gibbs22manila @gibbscadiz
Actors with experience in stage, television and film who wish to further hone their craft and proceed to their “next level” of performance as well as tackling other aspects of performance, such as vocal improvement, physicality and actor’s movement, audition techniques, choosing audition pieces, rehearsal and performance techniques--for all mediums, both for the local and international market--are invited to apply.
With the combined (local and trans-continental) experience and expertise of two of the most talented performers/coaches available in the Philippines today, students will be coached one-on-one on areas of performance they are “blocked” with or simply want to master/discover.
Actors with minimal experience may be asked to audition with either a song or a monologue (in English) of their choice. No more than 3 minutes and a CD with minus-one (for songs) are also required. Students will begin class with 30 minutes of movement, and culminate at the end of the workshop period with a showcase comprising of either their songs/monologues and a company movement piece.
“This year, it’s all about giving back, for me,” says Amador, who has had 24 years straight of non-stop work experience as an actress, singer, host, model and dancer both in the Philippines and England. She trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and was awarded 2 extensions of her grant by the British Council. Combining work in both the Philippines and the UK, Amador has appeared in over 70 plays and musicals, has had thousands of TV appearances in over 300 series, documentaries, game shows, specials, and musical guestings, and has made over 60 films. She is a two-time Aliw Awardee for Best Actress and has produced and directed documentaries. Amador is also the niece of Rep’s founder, Zeneida Amador.
Bill Atwood has almost 20 years of solid experience teaching both “Shakespeare for Kids” and “Cooking Up a Dance” (a modern dance workshop). Prior to that, he spent 10 years at the renowned American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, as an instructor of “Movement for Actors,” plus 6 years of hosting at the “Irvine Improv” and various comedy clubs in California and Michigan. Atwood trained in Acting with no less than Uta Hagen, Dramatic Writing with Leslie Lee at the Tisch School for the Arts, with Ana Sokolow in Modern Dance, and Claire Porter for “Laban” movement and Movement for Children. Bill is married to Filipina actress and restaurateur Kawie Manuel Atwood.
Classes will start on April 5, 2011 for 6 weeks (except for Holy Week) up until May 21, 2011. Sessions will be held every Tuesday and Thursday, 2-6 p.m., at Somerset Olympia Towers, 7912 Makati Avenue, Mezzanine Level, across from Swiss Inn, Makati City.
