Tutor: Ciarán McCauley
This drama workshop will centre around the “physical actor”. The participants will be introduced to actor training techniques from Viewpoints, Corporeal Mime and Suzuki technique. The exercises are created and selected to inform the actor in order to create a greater sense of understanding and control of the actor's spatial awareness on stage, and they are so useful in creating and locating a character. In the afternoon session we will work on some vocal technique and devising compositions using some costumes, props and text. Please wear clothing suitable for movement.
