Passport London: Finding Work as an International Artist

WHAT IS IT? Designed for international actors new to London whose first language isn't English, this workshop will be led by actor/producer Lara Parmiani. The course provides practical skills, professional guidance and support to help you develop your career as an international performer in London.

HOW WILL IT WORK? These two practical sessions will allow you to practice audition and rehearsal techniques for both text-based and devised theatre including cold readings, improvisation, and collaborative devising. Additionally, we’ll discuss how to position yourself in the market as an international performer, looking at CVs, casting websites, show reels and agencies. Finally, we’ll get you plugged into London’s creative economy with an orientation to London venues, artist development opportunities and networks. Please bring a very short text (3 paragraphs max) in your own language, and also your CV.

WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? The confidence to attend auditions for text-based and devised theatre and film/TV work in English. You will gain confidence that your web presence and CV effectively and professionally communicate your skills. You will acquire a range of professional networks and development opportunities to navigate your way through London’s acting scene with greater confidence. Price: £40.
