No Filter Acting: Audition Registration
the salon:collective’s six-month development programme
Get the best from the salon:collective’s experienced team of tutors in one fully comprehensive system.
The first comprehensive acting course of its kind in the UK. Not only does it have our extremely popular Meisner Technique system of training at its core, but all our tutors in all acting disciplines are also trained in the Meisner Technique and we have tailored the technique to the needs of the industry.
This part-time course will take you through the entire Meisner system while integrating voice work from expert Dewi Hughes (Head of Voice DSL), physicality with professional movement director and stage combat coach, Lawrence Carmichael, Shakespeare and text with expert Lizzie Conrad Hughes, and invited guest practitioners, who will expose you to new experiences.
Industry professionals such as casting directors and agents will guide you through the realities of the business, and show you how to bring your best to the table.
There will be performance opportunities throughout the course, and also a showing of work at the end of the course to an audience of invited agents and casting directors.
Contact time: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons beginning in January 2017 and running through to August. Additional attendance will be required for evening and weekend workshops. Reasonable notice will be given. There will be a week's holiday at Easter, another in June and time off in August and September. All dates are subject to confirmation.
Our experienced tutors have worked with a wide range of successful actors whose credits include work for leading theatre companies and institutions such as Royal Shakespeare Company, National Theatre, The Royal Court, Young Vic, Regent’s Open Air Theatre, Theatre Royal Stratford East, numerous West End theatres, and have appeared in TV programmes such as Game of Thrones, Nikita, Beverley Hills 90210, Marco Polo, Downton Abbey, Luther, Waking the Dead, Casualty, Doctors, Holby City, EastEnders, The Inbetweeners, Jonathan Creek, and feature films which include Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Prometheus, Mr Holmes, Lilting and RocknRolla
