The mission of Visionbox Studio is to help raise the overall level of the performing arts in Colorado by providing student and professional actors with training rooted in graduate-level curriculum, taught by theatre professionals. Visionbox also collaborates with writers, directors and designers in the development of new, multi-media performance work.
How We Work
Visionbox Studio is a 501(c)3 non-profit Professional Actors' training studio in Denver. We pride ourselves on a passion for process and an appreciation for text based training.
Visionbox Studio training is centered around the Actor's Five Questions, first introduced by Earle Gister, Head of Acting at Yale School of Drama for nearly two decades from 1980-1999. This is a text based technique grounded in the exploration of complex theatre literature including, but not limited to, Chekhov, Ibsen, Strindberg, Classical and Contemporary American playwrights such as Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Clifford Odets, Lillian Hellman, David Mamet, Sam Shepard, Horton Foote, and John Guare, and finally Shakespeare. All students at DADA are taught by Master Teachers and learn from the same material, regardless of enrollment in the Apprentice Program or the Adult classes.
Visionbox is the ONLY acting studio in Denver to combine students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds in the same classes of rigorous, text based training.
