Adults 'Acting Tools: Developing a Character' Course

For Adults (18+)

This course will focus on two specific aspects of acting:

It aims to teach participants a variety of helpful tools for getting into character, as well as techniques for the authentic portrayal and development of characters on stage, either from a pre-existing play or of their own imagination. To achieve this, an essential part of the course will be to analyse and explore a character's biographical background, to develop physical behaviours and traits for them to exhibit and to make sense of their emotional anchors and triggers. This will provide participants with the opportunity to really get to know their characters and discover how to bring them to life and portray them truthfully.

This course will lead up to a final performance, which will be devised as a team and will allow the individually developed characters to interact with each other.
