Love The One You're (Acting) With

Tutor: Andrew Allen 

Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton & Hove BN1 2LR
Next date: Sunday 10th June 2018 

Often we are told how to improve our acting through voice, characterisation, and physicality. This is all vital and necessary, yet ignores the very important factor that make our performing lives so much easier: one another.

So much of a performer’s story comes from the people around them. You share the stage with geniuses, Gods and Goddesses. In this empowering and involving workshop, you will utilise skills in listening and response so that you can rip up the script, dig beneath the text, and treat the words with a healthy (lack of) respect. Using a variety of acting exercises, improv techniques, and sharp, focussed games, we will engender a positive and encouraging environment in which each performer – beginner or experienced – is given the confidence to create their own work and play a whole range of characters. Want to be a better actor? Make everyone else look brilliant ...
