WF: Stella Adler: Bring Script to Life - Summer Workshop
In this two-night workshop we will explore some of the techniques used by Stella Adler to make specific and imaginative choices that connect to the inner world of the character. Stella Adler was one of the few Americans who went to study one on one with Stanislavski in his later years of work. Kathleen's teacher was Joanna Rotté, one of Stella Adler's protegés and the author of 'Acting with Adler'.
We will be using scenes from well known plays and will be exploring the techniques within this context. Actors will be asked to bring in elements of costumes and props for the work on the second night. Wear clothing that allows for movement and bring water to drink. Attendance on both nights is required, and some previous acting experience is required.
WI: Building Character Based Stories - Summer Workshop
This psycho-physical work will be explored and we will develop original characters that will be put into devised situations to explore structured scenes. It is perfect for those who wish to explore creating original material and to work on the process of physical transformation and creating characters.
The second night, actors will be asked to bring in more fully realised costumes/props, and we will create two or three "one act" stories to be performed for each other in studio.
This dynamic creative workshop is for actors with some previous experience who wish to work on physical and vocal techniques and the connection to imagination.
