Creating your own way of
working is a key tool for the professional actor and the
essential factor in cultivating your true artistic voice.
When working in the professional arena, you need to know what
works for you and how to adjust to whatever the circumstances
call for. There is no one formula, one method, or one way. What is
required is to cultivate a variety of tools to draw from.
These tools must always be in service of the work. Too often, actors
make the mistake of thinking the work is about them rather than
their "being the instrument."
Drawing from the many years that Stuart Burney has personally studied with master
acting teachers such as Meisner, Batson, Hickey, and at
the Actor's Studio (in NYC), he will guide you to cultivate a way of
working that is truly your own, one that will always serve you and
will protect your artistic center.
