Uta Hagen's Acting Class: Two-Video Set


In the UTA HAGEN'S ACTING CLASS video set, the revered actress holds forth on all the salient points of her approach to character, probing the text, testing technique, and challenging her students to act and think; act and reflect; act and choose. Above all, the viewer will learn that in Uta Hagen's classes, acting is doing. Not thinking or feeling, but in action. Clear and practical, her teaching is behavior based. “It's in the doing that we believe.

The videos, 90 minutes each, provide illuminating examples of her teaching points selected from two hundred hours of recorded classes over a two year period. All ten of her famous “Object Exercises” are performed and critiqued. We watch as the actors/students present their scene and Uta gives her comments. As the student re-works the scene, we actually see her guide the student to be better.
