The Actors Centre

Ibsen's Women

WHAT IS IT? An opportunity to study in-depth three of Ibsen's women. Nora from A Doll's House, Hedda from Hedda Gabler, and Elvira from The Lady from the Sea. HOW WILL IT WORK? We will workshop scene studies from these plays experientially. Looking at character, motivation, and the deep sub-texts of these scripts, laying the foundation for acting these great women's parts. We will also discuss in group discussion. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? The basics of how to analyse an Ibsen text. The confidence to act from a deep focus to express these texts, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually.
