CHARACTER ANALYSIS

GFCA CHARACTER ANALYSIS workshops in London and Internationally

We offer a series of four Intensive 4-day workshops devised for those wishing to understand and then explore in-depth the technique. Taught by leading contemporary exponent in the UK and Internationally, Giles Foreman, these workshops are designed to introduce actors to the work of the Drama Centre, London – as taught when he trained there, and now teaches at GFCA’s centres.

It is essentially a fusion of Stanislavski, the American evolution of the method, with European classicism and the extraordinary work of Yat Malmgren – a fascinating analysis of human expression accompanied by a series of practical acting exercises that lead the actor to psychologically and physically accurate transformation, using characters from Shakespeare (among others) and contemporary references as a basis.

The workshops are underpinned by the authoritative book on the subject written by Christopher Fettes, and published by GFCA: ‘A PEOPLED LABYRINTH’.
