About the Workshop
How actors move their bodies, their posture and even how they stand still can reveal unique and interesting characteristics about a particular character.
For theatrical performances, all movements on stage are thought out in advance.
The workshop will look at all forms of stage craft for actors, including movement, stage fighting and stage falls:
- How do actors know where to move on stage?
- How can movements reveal information about a character?
- How should they move when they portray a period character?
- How can an actor avoid the things that get in the way of the performance and can ‘switch off’ an audience?
The workshop is free and open to all (no experience necessary), just come along and have fun.
