Workshop Details

For an actor, a character is often a puzzle, and the process of rehearsal is discovering who the character is, and what their motivations are. The first clues to this puzzle are almost always in the playwright’s text. Sometimes these hints are obvious, and sometimes we need to ‘read between the lines’. This workshop will help participants unlock techniques on how to analyse and understand a section of text, so that when the words are finally given a ‘voice’ they are full of meaning and purpose.

Performer – Quasar Thakore Padamsee
