Course #33: Actor Training - Expanding Physical and Vocal Expression ( Two Tuesday Evenings in August)
This series of two Tuesday evening workshops, will be a deep immersion into re-awaking physical and vocal techniques for the actor with some previous experience either in class or in the profession. We will be working in a large studio, at the LAB on Foley Street, and will require participants to wear clothing that allows for full body movement. Particular attention will be paid to expanding vocal capacity, awakening the psychophysical process for actors, exploration of physical conditions (pain, injury, exhaustion, elation, etc.), body centers, vocal placement as well as working spontaneously and collaboratively to create characters and improvised scenes. Training is inspired by the work of Michael Chekhov, Cecily Berry, Kirsten Linklater, Roy Hart, and Rudolph von Laban, among others.
We will be working bare foot for some sequences, and will be doing a lot of voice and body work so bring plenty of water to drink.
Class size for this course is limited to 16 participants.
When: Tuesdays 6:15-8:45pm, August 15th & 22nd, 2023
Course #34: Actor Training - Theatre Performance Creation (10-weeks)
Course content will cover extensive voice and body work, and the creation of original collaboratively created theatre performance. It will culminate in two live performances on November 13th & 14th at the Pearse Centre Theatre in Dublin. It is perfect for those of you who are actor/writers or who wish to work to devise collaborative and high quality creative and original theatre performances.
Lead by actor/director/writer Kathleen Warner Yeates, we will challenge you to create two physically contrasting characters which will be woven into a dynamic narrative to create an original theatre performance. This will develop the actor as a creative artist bringing a wealth of ideas into the rehearsal room.
