Tutor: Geoff O’Keeffe
Within a warm and stimulating environment, and for actors and directors alike, this workshop will focus on developing the actor's creative response to the work. We will look to the physicality of the actor and how the body can be used to tell the story. We will create dynamic and engaging pieces of theatre that are rooted in ensemble work and in doing so we will push ourselves to be braver, at times bigger and always bolder. The workshop will offer participants strategies to unlock the text, placing the actor at the centre of the work.
