This project report describes my process in creating the role of Pam Adams as presented by California Repertory's March, 2010 production of The Poetry of Pizza by Deborah Brevoort. My approach was predominantly informed by the imagination-based techniques of Uta Hagen and Michael Chekhov.
After examining all character information offered by the text, I called upon my imagination to create a context for my character via Uta Hagen's "question-and-answer game." I further engaged my imagination in creating the physical life of my character through the use of Michael Chekhov's "imaginary center" and "radiating" exercises. The integration of these techniques coupled with my meditation practice led me to experience what it means to be truthful onstage.
