The Heart Aligned Response Acting Technique (HARA) is a system designed to enhance an actor’s imaginative capabilities. This results in more honest performances because it enhances one’s faith to live truthfully under those imaginary circumstances. Images coming into the mind are called perception, images going out are called creativity. Developing a strong imagination develops one’a ability to perceive and to create.
The HARA technique supports the actor to develop a strong sense of self in order to bring more of themselves to the performance at hand, ie. “bigger screen presence”
The content of the class challenges students on a range of levels:
by being grounded in physical acting exercises, students are encouraged to look deeply into how their bodies work; expanding the limits of their physical capabilities.
students are asked to hold with great respect and Mystery each other’s personal process to create the safe environment to do this type of character-building work.
because each day is filled with a wide range of focuses, the minds of the students are challenged to harness their gifts.
as our bonds grow and containment for more authentic work becomes stronger, the students’ quality of creativity and perception flourishes.
HARA Technique assists actors to remain centered and aligned in order to shine as magnetic, charismatic, and conscious individuals.
