Event Details

Suitable for performers


A New York style series of 5 New Shoes Theatre weekly workshops to clarify what an “Action” is and how to use it. 

4 half hour slots for active participants at all levels, all participants and active observers are expected to attend for the whole 2 hour workshop and to be prepared to support each other.
There are a limited number of observer places for professional actors.

The aim is that participants will experience and active observers will gain insight of:
How to identify an Action.
Why to use an Action
An Action within the framework of a whole play
An Action within a scene
An Action within a beat.
How Actions can be usefully applied to a text.
The difference between an Action and an Activity
How Actions can be applied to silence on stage.

Facilitator: Nicolette Kay New Shoes Theatre Artistic Director

Nicolette was taught the Stanislavski and American Method techniques of acting by the founders of The Drama Centre, London (3 years). She has worked as an actor and a director. As a director she has noticed that, as the 'method' terminology has become integrated into mainstream theatre, that there is much confusion and conflicting understanding surrounding the term ‘Action'.
