Programme Description

Challenging and terrifying but most of all exhilarating. The relationship between the Director and the Actor is fraught with danger but ultimately the greatest and most satisfying challenge in theatre making.

In this workshop you’ll explore the process of taking a piece of text and developing it into a finished performance. As either an actor or a director you’ll learn more about yourself and even more about each other.

Together you will look at character development, script analysis and planning as tools to develop your world on stage.

Above all, you will identify and develop your own traits as a director or actor as you gain hands on experience of working together.
