OCTOBER 4 DAY INTENSIVE

21st-23rd & 27th OCTOBER 2019

Limited to 14 Places

This 4 day workshop is guaranteed to leave you with motivation and direction along the path of being a performer wherever you are at at the moment in your career or journey. Not only are you working with professional actors, Olivier Award winner David Thaxton, currently Kevin T/Garth in COME FROM AWAY (Jesus Christ Superstar, Passion, Phantom of the Opera) and Fringe First & The STAGE Edinburgh Award winner Nancy Sullivan (After Life - Netflix, Little Voice, Les Miserables) all day every day, but you will also have 6 different top current industry guests in over the 4 days watching what you do, giving other points of view on your work and approach. SUITABLE FOR BOTH THEATRE AND MUSICAL THEATRE PERFORMERS.

UNLIKE MOST WORKSHOPS OFFERED THIS IS NOT ABOUT A 2 MINUTE MEETING WITH SOMEONE.

W1 IS A PLACE FOR ACTORS TO COME TO GENUINELY STRETCH YOUR TALENT, LEARN ABOUT THE INDUSTRY FROM THE MOST EXPERIENCED & DEVELOP YOURSELF AND WELLBEING.

THIS IS WHEN THE RESULTS TRULY COME!

WHATS INVOLVED...

INDUSTRY MINDSET & WELLBEING

Every day we will look at our approach to the industry - our audition, unemployment and 'rejection' approach. What we offer as actors in talent has a direct link to our mindset towards opportunities. We will practice mindfulness and resilience everyday. Many of our actors have had incredible results in changing their mindset. We also look at what you can be doing for yourself to get work rather than just waiting for an agent to do the work for you.

DANCE & FITNESS

3 out of the 4 days you will be doing a work out , mixture of dance and fitness session.

You will be pushed in all the dance sessions to give it your all and even if you're not a dancer push yourself to act through it, no one will get lost at the back!

AUDITION TECH & PERFORMANCE CLASSES

You can chose to either bring 2 songs or 2 Monologues to these classes.

We will cover audition technique/ acting through song as well as suggest material for you

ACTING / SCENE WORK

Contemporary scenes will be given out to suit your casting type. We will then work with them with a process followed by an in-depth session being on your feet with the text putting this process into practice - really getting into the nuts and bolts of a scene, exploring what the playwright wants, finding facts and asking questions, exploring the events and intentions.

IMPROVISATION

This is a vital skill as a performer, it makes you listen, keeps you present in the scene at all times and will benefit you massively in other areas of your performance.

PORTFOLIO

There will be time made on this course for you to talk through your portfolio choices with the team and get a professional opinion of what songs work for you and what doesn't. This is great guidance to have with what direction to continue to go in. We will also have time for you to talk over casting types, next steps and offer any guidance you might need.

MOCK AUDITION - FEATURING NATALIE GALLACHER (PIPPA AILION CASTING) AGENT CKG & ADAM BRAHAM

On the Sunday there will be a mock audition, in which we reflect exactly how auditions are held in the industry with a professional industry panel of 4 people. This is a great opportunity for us to see how you respond to the pressure of this environment and a great chance for you to put your last 3 days' training into action.

You will be asked to prepare 2 contrasting pieces which can be made up of songs or monologues of your choice. During the audition all the panel members will write notes on your audition and you will receive this written feedback at the end of the day to learn from, process and think about for the future. We will discuss with you what areas lacked and needed more attention, from walking into the room to your character commitment and performance technique.

Even if you have attended auditions in the past, this is a great opportunity for you to get written feedback from every panel member and different opinions on what you offered in the audition room.

After getting to know you all as performers well over the 4 days, the day will end with a Q&A with ourselves, offering guidance & advice with ways for all of you as individuals to move forward from where you're currently at. Here you can also ask any questions on you as individuals in your current situation that we may be to help with.

Due to the limited places we have on this workshop we would have to ask when you apply if you have not worked with us before you list some experience you have and what you are currently doing so that we can make sure we are right for you as well as you being right for us. This workshop will be at an advanced level and pace, aimed at students that have completed some kind of workshops before or have some performance experience even if it's not professional, this course is not advisable for absolute beginners.

PAYMENT & LOCATION

The cost of the workshop will be £230 for 4 days or £210 if you've attended two or more of our workshops in the past.

There is an option to have an instalment payment plan rather than the whole amount up front if you'd find this helpful, please let us know when booking.

The location of the workshop is the lovely Cherry Garden Hall, a very short walk from Bermondsey Underground station.
