This week long course, a continuation from the Introduction to Acting course, will concentrate on working with a director on the study of characters and individual scenes from a number of contemporary plays. if you have not completed the introductory course but have acting experience, please do get in touch so we can assess that for a place on the course.
Participants will call upon their learnings from the Introduction to Acting course to fully explore and develop character behaviours and traits and by the end of the course each person will possess the skills to better express and portray themselves in the characters within the chosen play.
Students will work closely as a team not only with each other but with the Director, Movement Coach, and Voice Coach.
Character analysis, character development and scene study will form the basis of this course, during which time participants will have the opportunity to really get to know the characters and discover how to portray them truthfully.
