Our next course

Our next six-week course will focus on Scene Work:

During these sessions you will work on scenes with two or more characters, taken from the stage and screen. You can expect to undertake text analysis, explore the psychology of a character and work with quick direction in an audition setting. You will explore the teachings of a range of practitioners such as Stanislavski, Meisner, Chubuck and Uta Hagen, to find organic and authentic moments within your performance.
These sessions provide a practical experience of acting text, as such, you will be working towards in-class performances for immediate feedback.
When: Tuesdays, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm, next course date TBC.
How much: £50 for a 6 week course
