CONTEMPORARY NATURALISM

Or The Art of Not Giving a Fuck

Contemporary Naturalism (CN) is an approach to acting that blends Improv, Meisner, Viewpoints and dance to bring actors towards a more honest performance and more visceral choices in their work.  CN seeks to take the “acting” out of your acting and centers more on being and honesty. Specifically for contemporary plays that demand more authenticity and the illusion of realism. CN is Esteban’s “way in” to the works of Stephen Adly Guirgis and other modern playwrights whose plays rely less on theatricality and more in earnest performances that employ and actor’s sense of self.  Like “Soul Music”, this is acting with your soul.

Private coaching is available for auditions, theatre, film, tv and commercials.
