FOCUSING ON BUILDING A CHARACTER

SATURDAYS: 18th- 25th JANUARY- 1st & 8th FEBRUARY - FROM 6PM TILL 8PM

Acting technique is paramount to anyone wanting to be a serious actor. It's quite easy to imitate a character or even an emotion, but where's the depth in that? How can you sustain or repeat again what you might have found intuitively? Do you even know what you did or how you did it?
The Stanislavski technique, however, will help you find a character, which in turn informs how you approach the text/script/written word. How do you bring the dialogue alive? How do you know what choices to make? The goal of a trained actor is to become a fully realised three-dimensional character, with a rich backstory. I must believe the character you play is truthful and not a cliche, a caricature, a thin external representation of someone who barely resembles a human being. I must believe what you say is real and that you're not reciting, spouting or commenting.
This worskshop focuses on the importance of characterization techniques and introduces the student to Physical warm-ups based on Grotowski’ s method , body awareness , physical intention and the development of character movement.
