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.
