STANISLAVSKI: PHYSICAL ACTION
Dates: April 4 to April 7 2017
Duration: 4 days
Hours of work: 10am to 6pm
Please note there are no RADA scholarships available for short courses.
In the last years of his life Stanislavski developed an approach to acting that synthesised the most useful parts of his previous systems: that of Physical Action. This 4-day course will employ Laban’s vocabulary of the natural rhythms of human behaviour: and explore, through simple practical exercises and scenes, how physical action can lead to a truthful fusion of character and situation.
This course is designed and led by Brigid Panet.
' .... there is something essential about Brigid's work; it gets to the essence of things, and the number of students and young actors who have benefited from the essential rigour over the years is legion. I was delighted when I took over at RADA to find that she was one of the regular teachers at the Academy.' Edward Kemp, Director of RADA
Participants work with Course Director, director, with support from a RADA faculty movement instructor.
Students below the age of 18 are not normally accepted. Entrance is by written application. The course is most suitable for actors of some experience or those who wish to revive their craft through practice. Students should be prepared to present material in front of other students. There is no upper age limit. Fluency in both written and spoken English is essential. If, for any reason, the Course Director feels that you have not enough experience, your application will be unsuccessful.
HOURS OF WORK
Classes generally take place between 10:00am and 6:00pm. You will be expected to treat classes as professional rehearsal calls. Punctuality is essential and a certificate, stating the minimum number of contact hours, is awarded on successful completion of the course. The course is not a casual undertaking: total commitment to punctuality, discipline and preparation is required from every student.
