Stories define us and make us human. Discover the many ways of telling stories in this six-day course, taught in-person at RADA.
Explore how a story can be told in your own words, or purely through movement, or as an epic tale told by a chorus, or through audio acting where the voice alone is paramount. Examine each of these approaches practically, in-depth, while discovering how ‘text’ can reveal more than you might suspect.
During the week, there are five classes in Physical Performance, and five classes in Voice. The course concludes with an informal sharing of the work.
Suitable for actors, writers and directors, of all ages and levels of experience.
