This ten week course will introduce you to modern acting techniques. We shall start with drama games, improvisation and status before moving on to the Stanislavki method which all trained actors in the West are familiar with. We shall also be looking as other practitioners such as Brecht, Grotowski, Artaud, Boal and at techniques like “Actioning” as championed by Max Stafford Clark. The course will also look at Commedia dell’arte and its influence on playwrights and comedy. Using a mixture of fun games and text you will emerge from this course a more confident actor. Suitable for absolute beginners and those with some experience.
