About the Course
Each Storyteller will work through a short song (around 32 bars or two minutes in length) or monologue. MJ and the actor will dialogue about the subtext of the lyrics to find honest and impulsive intentionality. What is the want and reason in each phrase of the song? How do you go about achieving that authentically and holistically? How does your breath inform the delivery of your intention? This intimate exploration will invite the actor to tell an authentic story. Storytelling that lives and breathes honestly, will make an audience lean in.
