About The Event

Governors Kim Estes & Kate Linder (Performers), and Governors Anya Adams & Mary Lou Belli (Directors), along with their Peer Group Executive Committees, invite members of the Performers Peer Group to:

Connecting with Actors: A Directors Workshop

We are seeking performers to volunteer to be part of the Directors Peer Group Workshop. Performers will rehearse and perform scenes with/for directors from the Television Academy.

About the workshop:
Television Academy Directors will be participating in a three-day workshop to learn how to understand the acting process and better work with actors. Actors are needed for the culminating project, when directors get a chance to take what they've learned and apply it to rehearsing a scene.
What you will do:

  • Memorize a two-minute, three-person scene before the workshop
  • Work with a director (or two) and two other actors to rehearse the scene during the workshop (1:00 - 2:30 PM Saturday)
  • Perform the scene for workshop participants and peers (2:30 - 3:30 PM Saturday)
  • Meet, mingle and network with fellow Directors and Performers peer group members


  • Elise Forier Edie has been an acting coach for over twenty years. Trained in multiple acting modalities, Edie carries certifications in both Rasaboxes and Meisner techniques and recently contributed to the book, Inside the Performance Workshop: A Sourcebook for Rasaboxes. She has taught acting and directing from New York to Los Angeles, and everywhere in between.
