Acting and Living in Discovery, A Workbook for the Actor lays out essential fundamentals of the actor’s process. Based on the author’s experiences at the legendary HB Studio in New York City, Acting and Living in Discovery provides practical guidance for developing, honing, or revitalizing the actor’s craft for the actor. A teacher can use the workbook to support a studio class, a special workshop, part of a university acting course, or private coaching. The chapters delve into basic facets of the acting process that lead the actor into discovering the corporal world of a script. Exercises at the end of each chapter invite the actor to discover the treasure trove of his unique self, and spell out the work an actor can do to wear the shoes of any character. The actor is at once the instrument and the player. The workbook can be read straight through or used as a reference for addressing a particular problem or topic.

About the Author:

Carol Rosenfeld is Director of the Hagen Institute at HB Studio in New York City, where she teaches acting. Having trained with Uta Hagen and Alice Spivak, she was entrusted by Hagen to write the chapter on Hagen’s technique exercises in The Training of the American Actor, edited by Arthur Bartow, published by TCG. Directing and acting in numerous successful television and stage productions, she has also had the privilege of working with some of the world’s finest actors in her intensive workshops across Canada, at the Shaw Festival and the National Theatre School of Canada, The National Theatre of the Deaf, Barcelona, Copenhagen, and London.

Review:

“Carol's technique is the foundation on which I build my work. She offers a solid, practical way to find truth, creativity and spontaneity in a performance. On film and on stage, I have used Carol's approach to acting to help ground me and to ease self-consciousness. Carol has been a huge influence in lifting my view on all aspects of acting. I highly recommend all actors to learn from this wonderful teacher and woman.” –James Saito

“Carol's book is the missing puzzle piece in the journey of the actor and artist. As a teacher, I feel that it has taken Uta Hagen's work and clarified it brilliantly. The specifc exercises, examples, and stories challenge, inspire, and ignite the actor's imagination and personal connections. I recommend this book to actors, artists, everyone! It is a wonderful tool for students and teachers to use.”
—Laura Gardner, Actress/Acting Coach, The Howard Fine Acting Studio

"In her new book, Carol Rosenfeld has distilled her life-long experience and dedication as a Master teacher of the theatre into an inspiring, lively and original workbook that inquires and examines the process of the actor's rehearsal—a process that is the back-bone of creating a fully realized performance of depth and detail."
—Robert McQueen, Director
