Event description

Description

A ten week intensive course covering the essential elements of an actor's training.

Text, scene work and improvisation are explored, along with physical and vocal exercises which will develop the body and the voice, enabling increased emotional and creative freedom. This consolidates an actor's technique, and will increase confidence.

Open to established performers needing a refresher, and beginners eager to develop their full potential. Classes are once a week on a Wednesday evening from 7-10pm.

1) INTRODUCTION.
We establish goals for the masterclass, and outline the way the sessions will enable you to achieve them. Bring a notebook to record exercises and personal discoveries.

2) YOUR BODY.
The importance of physical relaxation will be highlighted, with exercises given to build muscular strength combined with some for increased emotional freedom.

3) YOUR VOICE.
Vocal technique will be explained, with exercises focusing on the breath enabling a centered tone, greater vocal range, and clearer diction.

4) YOUR MIND.
A selection of acting techniques will be discussed, with exercises chosen that will activate creative imagination and release emotional memory.

5) SCENE WORK 1.
Plays brought for casting in pairs. Scenes chosen with cold readings, casting types explained, and themes discussed.

6) SCENE WORK 2.
