Acting Your Truth
Tutor: Jonathan Brown
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next start date: 19 April 2017
Playing in many areas including script, movement, physical, character and improvised theatre. With playful exercises, these sessions will stretch your acting muscles and offer new ways to play, to create and to perform. Come and develop your palette and tools, play with a broader set of choices, and find more freedom to act, both on stage, and in life.
We will work toward a smorgasboard of pieces that can be showcased at the end of the course to interested friends and family.

“Jonathan is an exceptionally capable teacher. He has a rare gift for really seeing a person, listening intently to what they have to say, telling them that one thing they really need to hear so they can understand their inhibitions and really dig deep to release their creativity.”
