The Workshop

 

This course will provide a step by step approach to understanding and practically using the Stanislavski System of Acting. The exercises are the ones handed down by Stanislavski from his work at the Moscow Art Theatre as part of his actor training system which is the basis of almost all international actor training programmes. Students work on a series of progressively complex exercises to develop an ability to first improvise, then to access an emotional life, and finally to bring the spontaneity of improvisation and the richness of personal response to textual work. This course is suitable for all levels of actors from beginners to more experienced participants. The course will help you to access truth within your performance.

Grotowski Method Acting

The Workshop

 

This course will provide a practical overview of Grotowski’s acting methods through a series of exercises with the aim of achieving greater spontaneity and truthfulness in performance. Rather than learning new skills, Grotowski’s process instead focuses on removing blocks and obstacles that prevent actors from revealing their inner life to the audience. It is a method which focuses heavily on the use and the integration of physical movement and voice.This course is suitable for all levels of actors from beginners to more experienced participants.
