Acting for Improvers
NOW SOLD OUT FOR JANUARY 2020
If you would like to be added to the waiting list please join via the “Book Now” button below. Alternatively, the instructor Harrison Rose is also teaching our Thursday evening Beginners Acting for Improvisation/Devising and Script Work courses. If you are looking for more of a challenge, why not join our Acting for Intermediates course on Wednesday evenings – which includes the opportunity to perform at the Courtyard Theatre in March 2020.
Our Acting for Improvers course is about building an ensemble of weekly members who want to learn the skills required to make bold informed choices and create distinct characters working through scenes from current and necessary plays. We will unpick what makes ‘great acting’ and practically work through some of the fundamental elements of Stanislavski’s process alongside Katie Mitchell’s checklist in order to get skilled up on what works for you.
We will be building the performers process and demystifying the art of acting in order to give beginners the toolkit required in order to be able to tackle characters and scripts.
We will be working on building confidence and becoming more aware and skilled performers.
Each student will work on two monologues, one for stage and the other for screen.
- Movement and voice training
- Stanislavski techniques including emotional recall
- Character development
- A tool kit of performance skills enabling you to free your inner performer from inhibitions
- Stagecraft skills
- Vocal and physical acting techniques relevant to screen acting as opposed to stage acting
- Development of personal confidence, imagination and creativity
