APRIL & AUGUST each year – International ACTOR-TRAINING 4-Week Acting Intensive Training in London! Workshop

information on 4-Week Acting Intensive Training in London! – intensive training with Giles Foreman and expert colleagues, including Character Analysis Stages, acting, movement, voice, and options to explore London’s attractions! Prices, dates

We look at ways of opening up and revealing the self so as to achieve real intimacy in performance. We plumb the actors’ resources, opening them to parts of themselves they had previously not accessed for their acting work. They also discover methods which assist them to dramatically increase their creativity in rehearsal, by developing instinct and the ability to surrender to impulses.
This is accompanied by an introduction to the system of character analysis influenced by the work of Christopher Fettes and the Yat Malmgren system of Movement Psychology.
We analyse the text in depth, and move on to developing truthful characterisation through a series of exercises – the character object exercise, character private moment and the character interview.
We work on monologues of the participants’ choice, and a series of classical / modern scenes [confirmed once we know the basic make-up of the group].

By the end of the course you may continue to explore acting on a deeper level in regular acting classes or workshops at the Centre. Even if not, you will be able to apply many of these skills in other walks of life, and feel more confident in your ability to communicate in public. Suitable for age 18+, with no upper age-limit.
The Centre is one of the best institutions for studying acting in London, and the techniques taught are drawn from that of the great acting teachers of the world, from Stanislavski through to Lee Strasberg, Uta Hagen, Sanford Meisner and Stella Adler.
No interview required before starting; best to book early as places fill fast.
