What you will learn

An investment. In you. Each stage of this training is designed to test you, test the robustness of your learning and the clarity of your acting choices. Good acting choices are at the heart of all great performances. Learn how to understand your instincts, conquer your fears and exist securely and creatively 'in character'. Learn how to recognise great texts and how to actively interpret them. Extended immersive improvisation, text and scene study, Shakespeare and performance skills will be the key areas of study.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • Understand the structure of Shakespearean verse
  • Identify intentions that marry strongly with the text
  • Deliver Shakespeare verse and prose creatively and convincingly
  • Work effectively - solo and in pairs to prepare a soliloquy (monologue)
  • Work effectively to prepare and present a short Shakespeare scene

Class format and activities

Learning through direct experience, observation and reflection: ‘doing and watching’. Improvisation, physical theatre and vocal work, warm ups. Continuous tutor and peer feedback. Debate and assessment of viewed excerpts from film, theatre and television performances, as and when relevant.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
