The Actors Centre

Tools for Learning an Accent

WHAT IS IT? Are your accents sometimes sounding a bit wonky? Does your Newcastle sound more Indian? Or your American more Irish? This fun workshop will give you techniques for working by yourself on ANY accent, breaking down the various components (sounds, body language etc.) in an accessible way, so that you have a better chance of being authentic all by yourself. HOW WILL IT WORK? There'll be listening - lots of listening - to different voices - and some movement. And when you are ready, lots of speaking. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? Confidence and practical skills to take straight into your next audition or rehearsal. Price: £30.
