Five Rules for Brilliance with Andrew Allen

2, 9, 16, 23 & 30 September

In a dynamic and supportive series of workshops, we’ll look at the inner workings of a script - the clockwork of a pause, the cogs of dialogue. No text is a mystery, and each script you pick up already contains all the clues you’ll need to solve its challenges.

Using a variety of acting exercises, improv techniques, and sharp, focussed games, we’ll unlock the secrets of a script, furnish ourselves with the tools to play a whole range of new characters: and highlight, week by week, the five rules for performance brilliance.

Presented by Andrew Allen (The Snow Queen, Four Play, Year Without Sunmer, co-founder of Cast Iron Theatre).

There are no tricks, just good techniques! Developing your actors ‘tool kit’ for performance

with Daniel Lovett

7,14, 21 & 28 October

 

As an actor more time is spent off stage than it is on, whether this be in auditioning, rehearsing or simply waiting for that next production!

In these series of workshops we’ll focusing on an actors most fundamental tool - the body and voice. The legendary stage icon - Steven Berkoff has been quoted in the past as saying that an actor should have the body of a ballerina and the voice of an opera singer. Therefore we’ll be exploring techniques to develop you vocally and physically for characterisation, deciphering text and ultimately keeping you honed and ready for the next opportunity of treading the boards!!
