Devising and Bringing a Script to Life - Writing, Directing and Acting
Participants, in pairs or groups, will learn how to devise, then act and direct, a short story - and have a great time discovering how to bring their script to life. We’ll also look at the director/actor relationship, casting, rehearsing, acting styles, blocking and performance. We’ll explore specific tools and techniques used by actors and directors and gain experiential insight into the actor's and director's craft.
