The Actors Centre


WHAT IS IT? Maggie will lead a workshop which demystifies the process of actioning the text and refines the process for those who have studied it at basic level at drama school. HOW WILL IT WORK? Finding the right action is an essential part of the process of preparation for an actor. Actors need actions, they cannot act moods; they need to be doing something with every line and an aim to achieve. Using active verbs we will look at how to refine the action-word until you hit exactly the right one to make the action come alive. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? A vital tool for the rehearsal room and a method to revitalise performance. “If you want to act, or act better, actions will take you a long way on the journey to excellence” (Terry Johnson). Price: £18.
