Acting With Passion
The Niki Flacks Method
Based on the latest research from the fields of neuroscience and mind-body psychology, Acting With Passion offers a revolutionary new approach to the age-old problems of the actor: dealing with nerves, engaging the body, quieting the inner critic, auditioning, memorisation and even playing comedy.
Disconnect your intellect and act with deep, emotional truth – giving rise to a performance that is honest, powerful and exciting.
Actors who have struggled with ‘visualization’ and ‘emotional recall’ can learn an alternative method of accessing feelings through the release of chronic, subtle muscular tensions that connect into the brain at lightning-fast speed and can actually produce emotions on cue.
Niki Flacks’ impressive career as director, actor, teacher, psychologist, spans both sides of the Atlantic. Flacks is a frequent tutor at the Actors Centre in London’s West End and at The Producers Club in New York.
Her very popular workshops in Paris led to her being invited to be part of the prestigious faculty of European A.C.T. teaching actors in London, Paris and Berlin.
“This unique work is based on the mind/body concept that our emotions are trapped in subtle muscular tensions that cause us to feel tight onstage. Instead of “being in the moment,” we find our heads taking over with nonstop critiques and we are consumed with effort to “make things happen”
