Description

HOW WILL IT WORK?

The Audition. The Rehearsal. The Performance. Three different stages of a performer's work cycle and yet many of us continue to approach our preparation for each in the same way.

This workshop will be a play around in order to arrive at some consistency with each (Ninja skillz!) Some of the material covered will include understanding the difference between fundamental and developmental research, training the subconscious mind, and use of outside tools and tricks to find a quick shortcut to accessing character.

Participants will have a chance to run through audition scenarios using real world audition scripts, experience a "table read" and scene analysis of classical writing, modern writing and crucially bad writing! Finally Youssef will share his routines, tips and tricks for bridging the gap between the rehearsal room and the performance and being confident on stage. Loads of information and loads of fun.

PREPARATION:

1.) Audition sides will be emailed a few days before the workshop (mimicking the industry standard) to be prepared for work in a mini audition scenario.

2.) You will invent a person and write at least one full page about them to bring to the workshop. Please write as much detail as you can so you know everything about them. In fact a good thing to do is pretend you're going to write this character into a movie and simply tell their story so that you have a clear understanding of who they are.

Rules:

They must be roughly your age and (ideally) your gender.
They must be located in the real world and human (no vampires, monsters, dinosaurs, talking cheeseburgers etc.)

An example would be ( John Johnson. He's 40 years old. He's married to Rachel Johnson. They have two children etc...he wanted to join the fire department in Columbus Ohio when he was 16 but his father etc etc)

3.) (Optional) If you've been struggling with a monologue or duologue please bring this in and we can open it up and have a look
