TOTALITY OF THE ACTOR with ANDREW DARREN ELKINS

DATE: Sunday 4th March

TIME: 10am-5pm

LOCATION: Old Vic Workrooms, 16 Drummond Road, Bermondsey, SE16 2JX

HOW WILL IT WORK?

In actor training often we find among drama schools, workshops and other forms of training three separate disciplines:

  • Training of the voice

  • Movement training

  • Text and scene work

All valuable to the progression of the actor and essential. However, when do we in ‘Westernised’ actor training get to combine all these elements into one? Naturally… in performance. But is the natural? To break the actor down into three distinct separate parts and disciplines?

Within the workshop we will be focusing on mind, body and voice; not as three separate elements but one. To find the harmony between the body, mind and voice. This highly physically intensive workshop will place emphasis on ensemble work, the connection with ourselves, others and the physical, vocal and psychological strength of the performer. The 'elimination of all organic and technical barriers, freeing oneself of all preconceptions and prejudices which could destroy the organic unity the person in action' - Jerzy Grotowski

Within these workshops the performer can expect to work with:

  • Acrobatics

  • Impulse work

  • Rhythm work

  • Spacial awareness training

  • Text

  • Support of partners and self

Do not think do.

Speak the text the rest is music.

It is important to note for participants that this will be a highly physical workshop.

ABOUT ANDREW

Andrew is a practitioner from the UK. He began his training at Rose Bruford College and the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre before working intensively with Bred in the Bone Theatre at the Grotowski Institute in Wroclaw, Poland.

Andrew has recently begun collaboration with Limb2Limb in preparation for a new play by Fiona Harper debuting in 2018 whilst continuing his work with Bred in the Bone.

The work of the company has led them across Europe and beyond leading the company to curate the Dreams Before Dawn festival of Theatre in Paris soon to be entering its fourth year in 2018.
