All About The Other; Listening, Connecting and Playing with your Scene Partner

1 Day Masterclass

Course Details

Saturday 9 October

13:00 – 18:00

Course Description

This workshop aims to help the actor move away from their head and move into their instinctive body. When we start to notice, respond to, and play with our scene partner in the present moment we truly step into a realm where anything is possible, and theatre starts to live. Giving our attention to the other means giving up control, and therefore involves true collaboration, artistry and cost. Drawing on exercises from Meisner, Donnelan and Rodenburg this workshop will help you develop practice that is generous, responsive and specific, and continually enjoy a sense of creative freedom.
