The Actors Centre

Advanced Solo Theatre Performance

WHAT IS IT? Three sessions developing your solo theatre ideas culminating in a showing in the John Thaw Studio. HOW WILL IT WORK? Building upon basic skills and techniques already encountered in Solo Theatre Workshops, you will develop your initial ideas over three sessions into a short ‘scratch’ performance, for further feedback, in front of a live audience. This workshop assumes a knowledge of the basics learned by attending one of Colin Watkeys' previous Face to Face Solo Theatre Workshops. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? An opportunity to take your solo theatre performance ideas to the next level. Price: £110.
