Saturday 30th November - 10am to 1pm
Duration: 3 hours
Number of participants: 20
This three-hour session will start with a rigorous vocal and physical warm up which will then lead into a selection of acting games and activities. This will lead on to storytelling and how to build a character from scratch. Participants will leave feeling they have had an experience of seeing the world from someone else’s perspective and owning their truth – which is what acting is all about.
