“LET’S GET READY TO RUUUMMMMBLE!” An introduction to the fascinating world of cool stuff that looks like it might hurt but really doesn’t. Slaps, punches and a bit of sword play, this workshop was ideal for actors, directors and people who like to make a “scene” in public places.

“From the Page to the Stage”: Bringing the text to life

This workshop was designed to give participants – actors, directors, set designers and countless others – the tools they need to interpret and create drama.

After warm-up games, participants engaged in a discussion of drama and took a brief practical look at different theatre styles, and then considered the difference between scripted work and improvisation. We looked at various texts and examined three key areas in which a playwright will give clues in his or her script that the trained eye can spot.

The participants then acted in a number of extracts, applying what they had learnt about interpreting these clues.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

First, we warmed up the three vital areas – mind, body and voice – with simple games and exercises. Next, we looked at the concept of improvisation and illustrated it with simple and effective games to get the creative juices flowing.

Whilst there are no absolute rules, we were able to look at some useful basic guidelines to help us create a scene. We applied these guidelines to look at how to keep the story “burning”[!!] in a two-person dialogue.

We then looked at how you can support your fellow actors in a larger scene – and looked at how this changes the dynamic of creation. Splitting into sub-groups, we then looked at creating moments – and, later, scenes – for two or more actors. All the time we did not need to depend on prepared texts since we were creating the drama as we went. Challenging? Yes. Achievable? Of course! Rewarding? YEESSSSSSS!!
