The Actors Centre

Scene Study: Simplicity and Theatricality

WHAT IS IT? A two-day workshop allowing you to analyse, play and experiment with scenes and moments within them, using contrasting simplicity and theatricality. HOW WILL IT WORK? Using a wide variety of material and scenes, Gari will take you through a process, allowing you to really play, using simplicity and theatricality. This process will improve your text analysis skills and allow you to be in the moment, developing your intuition and spontaneity and giving you more confidence. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? You will take away improved methods and a more instinctive way of analysing text and bringing it to life, which will prove a huge advantage in auditions and rehearsals, as well as a further knowledge of plays, playwrights and ideas for audition and further development. Price: £60.


This workshop runs over 2 days
