We have another exciting course lined up this month as part of our collaboration with AISGE for Spanish performers who want to get to grips with working on English productions. It will take place between November 27 and 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
The course will include working on excerpts in English of several plays (some in verse, such as Shakespeare’s, in addition to other more modern ones), scenes and monologues will be worked on to explore how the text contains the ‘plane’ of what the actors call ‘character’. It will also examine how the rhythm, tempo and sound of a piece are key elements when successfully delivering that ‘character’ to the audience.
