The Workshop

Acting is responding to what we know. As actors we open up our emotions and allow ourselves to live other lives. Each actor is unique. So, too, is the creation of characters each embodies when performing.

Day One  

Each participant will discover a character from their own imagination.

Every character comes from somewhere. In this workshop we will discover the character’s world and a point in their lives where the character feels a great urge to talk, to understand, to remember – a transition point.

We all have them, remember yours?

From this place will come a unique monologue, which the participant will write. Each monologue only has to be about 2 minutes in length.

Day Two

The monologues will be read, discussed and then performed.

The only requirements for the workshop are your imagination, an open mind and a belief in your innate ability to create.

Come and find all the characters residing in your soul.
