WHAT IS A MASTER CLASS ?
A master class, it is the meeting privileged with the approach of a professional that one wishes to nourish his own work. And it is well as hears it Gwendale Schmitz.It’s a way for her, to share her experience as a casting Director since more than twenty years.
First of all, the practice of the acting and a permanent réflexion to understand the principles of them. To connect the actor with his center of interest for the art of « Acting ».
Gwendale Schmitz makes it’s « class » a research laboratory, one moment of creativity, and, still today, its ambition remains intact : Not base on appearances but to develop of each one its capacity has to play and to try out the intensity of it.
In two words : To engage deeply. (Without using crutches, on stage or in front of a camera).
Some specials exercises will be some of the cards wich make it possible.The master class being exclusively an intense training for the actor « The passage of its scene » is only one secondary aspect (a tool).
All futur characters are already in us, it is to us to let them appear.
I create a method so that it helps to reverse the usual process.
WORK THE TEXT ONLY WITH THE EAR, AS A MUSIC (WITH HIS RHYTHMS, ITS SOUNDS, ITS ENERGY)
Imagination, the creativity of the artist will be necessarily started : He becomes an interpreter with an open heart and the possibilities wich is offered to him.
