Lost in Translation

by Steven Ivcich

There’s a big difference between understanding your lines and bringing them to
life in an audition or performance. I’ve often listened to actors give genuinely
insightful interpretations of their lines and then see those same lines die a slow
death in front of the camera or on stage. The problem is that their insights have
to be translated into human behavior, into something that will be believable as a
human being actually experiencing something. Most actors don’t have a clue
about how to do this.

There’s only one thing that can translate insight into action and ironically enough,
you’re doing it right now. You are experiencing! You translate your interpretation
of the words into action through your moment-to-moment experiencing. Knowing
how to do this is at the heart of every CORE Intensive.

With a CORE Intensive you are not learning a method or system. The approach
is experiential. You learn how to experience your way through every audition,
every performance. To find out if this approach is right for you, you need to try it
on. Take a 90-Minute Exploratory with Steven Ivcich, the originator of CORE, on
Saturday, March 7th (1:00-2:30pm) or Monday, March 9th (1:00-2:30pm). The
class is free and you get a “hands on” feel for how CORE can work for you. To
attend you must register here.
