"Getting to work with Shannon was a privilege. Shannon's approach, steeped in her excellent training with The Barrow Group, is to give the actors room to breathe to explore the text, and develop their characters collaboratively. By Shannon encouraging the actors to recognize that all the choices they make are good ones, whether they are selected or let go of, instills a confidence that enables the actor to continue to take risks in rehearsal with spectacular results. I was particularly taken with Shannon's direction of guiding the actor to discover a displacement activity during a scene, resulting in a totally natural delivery of the text that enriched the scenes and each actor's performance."
