Acting workshop for writers

Why do writers should study acting


Writing and acting are two creative fields that initially seem very different, but actually they have a lot in common and are even complementary.
Here are some reasons why writers should learn acting:

1. Development of characters and roles: In the game, participants play different roles and create characters. Writing uses similar processes to create characters and give them life and multiple dimensions.
2. Building a plot: In both areas, it is necessary to build a fascinating plot that will convince the readers or players. The ability to tell fascinating stories is a skill that must be developed in both cases.

3. Dialogue: A good dialogue is a key element in both areas. The dialogue game in writing and acting are very similar – they need to be natural and interesting. A writer who will learn acting will be able to trace the internal processes that created the dialogue in the mouths of the characters he writes in an authentic and convincing manner.
4. Practicing improvisation: Practicing improvisation techniques gives writers tools for creativity and quick thinking processes – as well as for creating scripts that are based on real, spoken language.
5. Inner acting skills: A deep understanding of human dynamics, emotions and actions is necessary for both writers and actors. Acting experience allows writers to better understand how to convey the emotions and feelings of their characters.

In conclusion – acting offers useful tools and techniques for writers in the use of acting skills, dialogue, plot building, and more. The ability to think like an actor and bring the characters to life can improve the writers’ writing and enrich their text with additional dimensions.

I came to Maya for performance coaching for a music concert I was doing. I've had coaching before and with mixed results. Maya is by far the most creative and talented coach I've ever worked with. She brought out emotions in me I didn't know I had, and was able to help me reach something I couldn't achieve on my own. She was compassionate, patient, and knew the exact right buttons to push to get the best out of me. When showtime came, I completely trusted her and felt so much more confident because of it.

Maya Behar's acting workshop is a bright spot in my life. Theater was something that always fascinated me and intrigued me. Only at the age of 22 did I have the courage to jump into the cold water and sign up for a workshop. Happily, I won Mia. Mia accompanied me and taught me to bring who I am into the theater. According to her, our emotions and personality are what the audience is waiting for. The experience, the conversation and the warm accompaniment remain with me as a strengthening and shaping memory that goes forward with me. I was privileged to be moved, to be excited to learn and to experience a unique and powerful experience.

My 13-year-old sister Abigail finished a summer acting workshop at Maya's. Abigail's experience was stunning and empowering, she received a lot of tools that I'm sure will help her further down the road, a In addition, it is important for me to note the connection and confidence that Maya gives the students, which is something very important in my opinion at this age. Glad we chose Maya 🙂 highly recommend.

So yesterday I finished a workshop of 20 sessions with Maya. It was a special, educational, empowering and very enjoyable experience (there is no shortage of difficulty, but that's part of the fun). Mia is an excellent teacher, attentive and empathetic, but also sharp and deep, a combination that allows her to lead each participant to get the best out of themselves. I'm very happy that I did it and strongly recommend it to everyone - certainly for those who have a burning passion for the game, but also for those who have something in them that is drawn to it but is hesitant and maybe even a little afraid. I wouldn't give it up!

I came to Maya with a "camera shyness" that prevented me from shooting marketing videos for my business. Maya's warmth, care, and professionalism shine through even on Zoom, and I already felt the improvement after the first online session.

Maya addresses sensitive points and provides exercises to help overcome them. The process is not yet complete, but after several sessions, I already feel more liberated and express myself with much more confidence in front of the camera. I highly recommend her!

Maya has rich experience in acting and teaching acting and an understanding of subtleties and nuances, I participated in an acting workshop with her for several months which was both very enjoyable and educational and meaningful and included a part of improvisations and a part of working on monologues and performing in front of an audience at the end. I learned a lot from her. In addition, I recently experimented with a short online workshop that was enjoyable and fun. And besides, she's a great person (: I highly recommend both face-to-face workshops and Zoom workshops.

I came to the studio in order to improve my standing in front of an audience (like quite a few people), and I discovered much more than that. During the workshop, I learned to get to know my strengths and weaknesses in depth while experimenting. Mia worked very hard on me, and I improved a lot compared to the starting point I reached with her. There are some things I want to try to apply further outside the studio in situations of standing in front of an audience. And another nice side effect, it's fun to vent frustrations that no one knows the source of, in someone else's text. There is something very liberating about that.

I started the workshop with Maya as a person who is terrified just by the thought of standing on a stage. Mia enriched my toolbox as an actor and as a person, empowered me all the way and didn't leave any of my colors outside the door. Her energy, sophistication and professionalism bring the right people to the workshop and I felt that I was enriched by all the participants who were with me. It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience (twice, because I returned to this workshop again, and I would return again and again). Highly recommend to any actress at any stage of her/his career and to any person whose stage is the source of their nightmares.

About the work process on Asherei
“Maya Behar is an actress with a very impressive stage presence, diverse and rich professional abilities.

Throughout the work process, Maya discovered great dedication and uncompromising willingness to explore and experiment, go deeper into discovering many components of the demanding and difficult role she was asked to embody.

Regarding the show “A Touch of Light”

“Maya Behar is not one of those people who is easy to decipher at a glance. She changes voices, rises and falls in tone while speaking, tells jokes and marvels at imitations and then becomes completely serious. Behar is a performer in the full sense of the word … This week she returned from Paris for a short vacation. Miles in French-speaking countries and Europe with her solo show. “
