Staying in practice is one of the greatest gifts an artist can give themselves. But for actors it can be hard to find the opportunities. Broken Mirror offers a weekly scene study focused on helping actors to reforge a healthy relationship with their art, hone their skills, and build community.
Inspired by the 30 year collaboration between Danish Theatre Maker, Per Brahe and Master Balinese Mask Maker, Ida Bagus Anom, Broken Mirror Studios is thrilled to offer this incredible approach to mask work and the exploration of character.
Schedule an hour, hour and half, or two hour private session to help you reach your goals! Career coaching, audition prep, monologue work, self tapes, and private mask sessions! Broken Mirror is here to help!
Join us for the third chapter of a year-long investigation of the craft and legacies left by some of the world’s greatest theatrical innovators. For 7 consecutive weeks participants will gather as an ensemble and, through a lab-based approach, explore the teachings of a single theatrical giant at a time.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Effie Kamer. Actor, Playwright
Through their sensitivity and mastery, Ben facilitates an earnest and expansive exploration of mask. His workshops are excellent. Ben is present, skilled, and kind as they guide the actor into deeper and deeper channels of creativity in being.
Vanessa Ogbuehi. Brand Strategist, Theatre Artist
I was eager to have a one-on-one experience with Ben to reacquaint myself with the practice and to make new discoveries after a year of sedentary life. Ben led me through an exploration nothing short of astounding. Their openness to letting me laugh, play, and cry in the safe, intimate setting of their studio helped me get in touch with emotions and characters I forgot I had access to.
Mark Kennedy. Actor, Deviser
I'm still carrying the experiences I went through under Ben's expert coaching. Their ability to meet me where I was, work with my physical and emotional intuition, and push me to explore more deeply and with more curiosity than I ever expected of myself left me feeling cared for, empowered, and witnessed.
Jasai Chase Owens. Actor
I really enjoyed Ben's class. (Following the workshop) the next week for me I felt better than I had in a very long time. I was filled with a level joy and self love that has been elusive. My work was less heady and more in my body even as I sat at a table doing script work.
Carol Moog PhD. Licensed Pychologist and Musician
Ben’s expert use of the many masks they have available for the work, together with their sensitive and insightful approach to the actor, allowed for a revealing and useful connection on somatic and emotional levels."
Chris Harral. Actor
Working with Ben was EXACTLY what I needed. I was able to explore the purely impulsive side of me that, for a host of reasons, I always seem to be fighting against. The invitation to say yes to my body and their clarity in how to apply this work to all areas of my acting (and life) has been a freeing revelation. Would definitely recommend!
