This ten session workshop investigates a
single classic text in depth. We explore the world of the play
including character and context, and discover playful approaches to
bring the text to life. There will be an informal sharing to an
invited audience in the final session.
The result will be a very exciting and personal response to the text made by the group.

The workshops cover:
1. LIFE STORIES - working with the actor's life experience as tool and inspiration for performance (exploring personal experiences, discovering and following impulses, identifying and releasing blocks, connecting to and receiving from others, expressing and playing with emotions).
2. CRAFT WORK - giving the performer the knowledge required to shape and focus their performance material. We explored the languages of contemporary performance helping the actor to develop their own voice (analyse and experience 20th / 21st century performance practices, play with the architecture of space in performance, discovering their contemporary voice as a performer, expand their expectations of the audience/performer relationship).
