“Should I sit, or should I stand?” That is NOT the question…

shutterstock_108474779When preparing your audition have you ever wondered, “Should I sit or stand?”

We run our acting workshops like a casting session, with actors coming in one at a time. This question comes up a lot.

It’s the inspiration for today’s video.

Should I sit or stand is a good question. But it doesn’t go far enough.

The audition chair is your friend. In fact, if you know how to work that chair to your advantage, it can become a thing of magic.

See what we mean in today’s video.

The Magic Chair

An audition is an unnatural circumstance. You don’t have the benefit of a real location, wardrobe, or other actors. Your job is to use all resources available to you to create the illusion of a fully lived out reality.

The chair is your friend in this endeavor. It can be a desk, a bar stool, a car, your couch…

Using the chair to create an imaginary location will add another layer of depth and reality to your audition.

It really is a tool of magic!
