Practical Acting with Philippa Hammond & Thomas Everchild

6, 13, 20 & 27 June

A fun, supportive, interactive course exploring the practical ways that actors and directors develop scenes during rehearsal.

Practice various ways of working a scene, including intentions and secrets, spotting moments and handling movement and props.

Actor/coach Philippa Hammond and writer/director Thomas Everchild run Brighton Actors Networking Group and Sussex Playwrights.




Improvisation for Actors - with Jenny Rowe

4, 11, 18 & 25 July

What is improvisation? How is it important for actors? And why does it fill some of us with dread and some of us with joy?

Over four fun weeks, we’ll explore the basic ideas behind improvisation, how it can help in workshop auditions, presentations, developing shows & characters, thinking on your feet and supporting your fellow performers. We’ll dabble with a bit of spontaneous Shakespeare, look at how improv can help get over creative blocks, and use improv as a jumping off point for writing and devising.

Actor/improviser and writer, Jenny Rowe, is a long term member of Brighton improv theatre company, The Maydays, and London-based group Impromptu Shakespeare.
