Acting for Life: An Intersection of Life & Art - Your College Webinars: College of Arts & Sciences
From Donna Hardy on December 9th, 2020
We often think of acting as merely “pretending.” But the truth is that acting is a study of those basic life-skills that we need to navigate our lives. Analytical skills, interactions skills-including listening and empathy, leadership and teamwork, self-awareness, and the ability to establish life- plans, objectives, and timelines. All of these enable us to succeed in our careers and life-pursuits, form and maintain healthy relationships, and help us to continue to grow on a deeper, personal level. In this workshop we will explore how the same strategies that actors are required to master in order to create truthful and memorable characters can also help us in our personal lives.
