Fundamentals of Acting

This four-week workshop explores the techniques that an actor uses to decode a text. Using both script analysis and physical exploration, you will explore language, form, and character in order to strengthen a performance.

When: 5th June – 26th June (4 week course)

Time: 10:00 – 16:00

Where: Wildcard Studios, 18 Balderton Street, London, W1K 6TG

More information:

Working with a range of texts you will explore practitioners such as Stanislavski, Laban, Boal and Michael Chekhov. Through practical activities, discover the fundamental skills required for acting. Identify how to create character and how to respond effectively to other performers. Explore spontaneity and characterisation. Respond to text, work collaboratively and develop a specific approach in developing your performance skills.
