The Travis Technique
Is a radical, playful and profound way into Story, Characters and Scene

- If you’re a director, you can free yourself from the restraints of traditional directing and venture into inspired and powerful collaboration with the characters.
- If you’re an actor, you get to relax and enjoy being the character.
- If you’re a writer you get to engage with your characters up close, live and in person.

Goal: To introduce directors, actors, writers and all storytellers to the three components of The Travis Technique through demonstration, improvisation and stories.

The Three Components of The Travis Technique

1. Story: Write Your Life
Mining Your Own Life Story for Emotional Truths
Learning how to reveal your own chaos and complexity will give you the courage and skills to shape any story into a highly compelling and emotionally engaging journey.

2. Characters: the Interrogation Process
Working with Actors to Generate Authentic Characters
The Interrogation Process is designed to bypass the actor’s mind, so that each character can emerge naturally and organically from deep within.

3. Scene: the Power of Staging
Stimulating the Emotional State of the Characters
Rather than staging for the camera, you must first consider the emotional state of the characters, how the staging will affect them, and whether the staging stimulates the appropriate emotions in every character.
