Course overview

Clarify your own approach to acting, develop a more robust rehearsal technique and explore the acting methods of Constantin Stanislavski, through in-depth work on scenes.

In this practical 10-week course, you will work both collectively and in small groups to analyse and rehearse specific scenes from a range of texts, culminating in a sharing of the scenes you have prepared. The course uses a framework of techniques practised by Stanislavski and later practitioners who were influenced by him, including Uta Hagen and Sanford Meisner.

Some preparation/reading will be required between classes.
