Learning Lines with Confidence

WHAT IS IT? A two-day workshop designed to combine line-learning techniques with a fresh understanding of how each of us responds to stressful situations, offering practical ways of gaining new confidence in study, presentation and performance. HOW WILL IT WORK? Through gentle, safe and enjoyable exercises, finding and releasing our individual habits of physical tensions when under stress, we use techniques of line-learning with short speeches and scenes from different plays. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? A new confidence in yourself and your acting, a secure process of relaxation and advice on how to best present yourself in auditions and castings. You will also pick up techniques for learning lines and rediscover the fun of listening and imaginative communication. Price £60


This workshop runs over two days
