Every year, thousands of actors struggle to navigate today's film and TV business while also wanting to grow as performers, as artists. These actors tend to be risk-takers, mold-breakers, and are interested in defining who they are. They are looking for advice and guidance about art and about commerce. The Authentic Actor is for them. The actor's path today begins with two questions: Who are you? What do you know? Beginning with personal authenticity, The Authentic Actor reveals a holistic approach that fuses discovery of the “actor's fingerprint” with skills for managing performance, career, and life — as artist, businessperson, and citizen. It addresses the toughest subjects, from mastering auditions and ?dealing with representation to bouncing back from rejection and finding your “tribe” — all with the humor, and the no-b.s. voice of an experienced mentor. The goal? To help actors forge a professional career and meaningful life while never forgetting their artistic core.

Using clear and simple exercises adapted for leadership development from the world-renowned Meisner Technique, The Authentic Leader will help you discover first-hand what it means to build your authentic leadership skills in a clear, technical way. This book presents a version of the Meisner technique that has been thoughtfully modified for the purposes of leadership training. It aims to train leaders to be fully authentic in their responses in the most efficient way and to let their responses be filtered by their abilities to deeply interpret and thrive within the psychological realities of the circumstances they are entering, be it their own or other people’s. The exercises in this book teach that effective leadership skills are about getting the attention off of oneself and allowing for a type of interpersonal determinism to bring out a leader’s truthful responses. This text breaks open the conversation on leadership and business skills in a whole new way - an established, although largely unknown method in the business world – that will help leaders engage in the values of great leadership and train their own abilities to have presence, be dynamic, be magnetic, and know how to read any situation and thrive within it. Whether you are green in your career or at the head of a nation, an aspiring leader or an educator looking to use this material, this work develops and nourishes powerful leadership in unconventional, effective, and dynamic ways. Royce Sparks is an internationally recognised teacher of the Meisner Technique. He has taught it to both performers and members of the business world, having been one of the masterclass lecturers at University College London (UCL) on their MSc in Management. A graduate of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, he has presented on Meisner and other approaches to performance at international conferences. His interest in performance techniques for business and leadership development are a core element of his research. Individuals and companies within the arts he has collaborated with professionally include The Noh Theatre of Japan, Terence Stamp, Frantic Assembly, Nickolas Grace, Michael Attenborough, Complicite, Brigid Panet, and more. He received his Meisner training first under Scott Williams at the Impulse Company in London for five modular years before furthering his knowledge and receiving his certification to teach the Meisner Technique from leading world expert Larry Silverberg, with whom he later collaborated. He regularly coaches and has taught in Canada, the United Kingdom, Europe, and the United States.

In life there are always new levels for us to reach, and it takes a lifetime to become a complete person. I believe the world is a school of ever learning, and we are its students with the unbelievable potential, to be more than we can dare “ask or think.” This book will speaks to the real person you want and should be. The person you were born to be. The Authentic You! I am fascinated by the life and accomplishments of people who fought against the odds, the dreamers who wouldn’t stop dreaming, until their dreams became a reality. In doing it, they changed the world around them. They did it and you can too. In sharing the stories of the known and the unknown, who have done such amazing deeds with their life, I believe that you will share with me, the motivation to be THE AUTHENTIC YOU “I loved Fabulous Over Forty. Thank you for keeping us inspired with The Authentic You.” -Susan H. “You are so positive. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us.” -Ms. Daniel “The Authentic You is another winner.” -Tiney Gibbs “Job well done. Keep up the good work.” - Kathy and Donald

Freeing the Actor is the seventh in a series of books by Eric Morris which explain and describe his unique system of acting. His previous books are among the most popular texts used by students and professional actors alike. In this book, which is totally aimed at the instrument, Eric has implemented a complete approach to eliminating the obstacles, dependencies, traps and habits that plague and block actors from functioning from an authentic, organic place. Historically most acting coaches and teachers have failed to adequately address the instrumental problems that cripple actors. By teaching them how not to act, Eric has influenced scores of people to become experiential actors. His teaching has led them to understand that they must experience in reality what the character is experiencing in the material. In order to accomplish that, they must be instrumentally free to connect with and express their authentic emotional realities. Liberating the instrument allows them to access all the colors of their emotional rainbow.

In a cultural climate where literary study and theater practice often seem out of touch and out of sympathy with one another, reading and acting tend to be viewed as dissimilar, if not mutually exclusive, occupations. One is private, mental, passive - and something that we all do. The other is public, physical, active - and something that only a few highly trained practitioners do.

Rona Laurie has drawn on her wide experience as an actor, professor of speech and drama, and adjudicator in this analysis of the art and craft of acting. This book is for, and about, actors and drama students. However, it will be of interest to anyone who has an interest in live theatre, either as a performer or as a member of the audience. Rona Laurie concentrates on honing the actor's abilities: how to use the voice, modulation and movement to develop characterisation. Detailed consideration of Shakespeare, comedy, farce and some modern playwrights give extra insight into these genres. The discussion is completed by an evaluation of some of our finest performers: Peggy Ashcroft, Alan Bates, Kenneth Branagh, Judi Dench, John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier.

This book analyzes performances at the reconstructed Globe Theatre in London between 1996 and 2004 by focusing on the new Globe's most defining characteristic: authenticity. The book addresses the question of why authenticity has become so crucial in late 20th and early 21st century Britain and what productions of the authentic Shakespeare say about contemporary identities.
