    This 6 week introductory LABAN course will be exploring the ‘outside in’ approach to creating and developing characters for both stage and screen. This course will
    ask the actor, ‘How does changing the way you move, use your body and relate to space, affect characterisation and your emotional life?’ Each one hour class will start with a short warm up followed by one main exercise -exploring each LABAN effort in depth. Once confident with the technique and
    approach, we will begin to apply the ‘LABAN efforts’ to text and character, working on monologues, both classical and modern with group work, peer evaluation and
    individual feedback. This course will provide you with a new tool kit to draw from in all areas of your
    acting. This is a practical course with very little written or theory work. So get ready to put on something you can move in, get on your feet and get into your body as
    you explore the endless possibilities of LABAN’s work. (Don’t worry - you don’t need a lot of space, one of two yoga matt’s worth of space is sufficient!).

  • Stage and Screen Intensive

    Begins

    Feb 1st

    Monday and Thursday Class

    6:00 - 9:00pm (GMT)

    Harry McEntire (The Last Kingdom Netflix/BBC) and Adam Gillian (Hadestown, National Theatre, Counsel BBC)

    Led by

    A 4-week course that includes one stage and one screen class a week. Whether you are a stage actor looking to work on your screen skills or vice versa, this course, lead by Harry McEntire (The Last Kingdom BBC/Netflix, RSC) and Adam Gillian (Counsel BBC, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical UK/IRE Tour, Hadestown National Theatre) provides an in-depth and detailed insight into both worlds simultaneously.

    The skills to prepare a performance for both Stage and Screen are rooted in the same fundamental principles however it is in knowing where the differences lie and having a firm grasp of both that an actor can truly hold their own - whether on a stage in front of hundreds or on camera in front of a dozen crew members.

    Participation in this course will require preparation time outside of class. Please take this into consideration when applying.
