With a focus on advanced improvisation and drama exercises, as well as analysis of text, character development and how to unblock the body, senses and imagination, this course will teach you ways to develop a range of skills essential to anyone that has stage experience.
Intermediate students. As all classes will be held in English a sufficient knowledge of the language is required. Recommended minimum age is 18 years.
Using the grounding from Acting Course Beginners, this will move its participants into more text based charaterisation. Using established texts, classical as well as modern, you will learn to analyse a role and bring your own interpretations to a character. Through this process we will build up a repertoire of scenes from which we will chose a selection to perform at the end of the course. The performance is voluntary and the details surrounding it will be decided by the participants and the teacher together.
To help participants join the principles of drama to that of theatre as well as introducing a sample of different dramatic genres.
