Acting Workshops for Ages 16 and Over
New and old members welcome to join the Thursday workshops to ‘oil their acting skills’ and collaborate on creating mini vignettes of theatre each week. The sessions are based on a combination of scripted and improvised work, which are designed to develop participants confidence both vocally and physically. A range of approaches and stimuli will be used across the term.
The workshop this term will focus on creating an ensemble scene each week, which will be performed at the end of each session. In this way participants get to create a performed outcome each week by working within the supportive structure of an ensemble. This helps build performance confidence and participants get to work in a variety of contexts and genres. The material for the initial sessions will be selected by the leader, but thereafter can be negotiated by attendees. The first week we are working with The Trojan Women a play last terms participants wanted to continue with for another week.
