Students get to grips with the building blocks of an actor's work, and a taster of training at a drama school like RADA. The course begins with examination of the essential areas of voice, physicality and acting, mixing practical technique with creative work, and goes on to apply these techniques to both scripted and improvised performance. The sessions draw from leading practitioners across disciplines, such as Stanislavski, Laban and Keith Johnston. The students then collaborate with the tutor, and each other, to create a presentation of work drawn from the areas studied. This presentation will allow an invited audience insight into the group's two weeks of work, and allow students the vital experience of exercising their newly developed muscles in a live performance environment. The course is designed to be accessible yet challenging, and should also be a great deal of fun.
