  • A two-step model that empowers the actor on their creative journey that reveals complex inner narratives and motivations for their character 

About the Presentation Facilitator

Alan Powell created Actor Care® to accommodate our new understanding of trauma and how it can and should be informing the acting process and the development of characters. He now supports actors’ resilience and vulnerability in the creative process as an Actor Care Specialist. He works with groups in education and production as well as privately with actors who want to develop a healthier/self-care approach to their work.
