The salon:collective's classes in Meisner Technique are headed up by Dominic Kelly. Dom is the artistic director of the salon:collective and has taught the technique for over eight years.
This is Shakespeare as you have never done it before. We combine a raft of specific skills for decoding Shakespeare’s directions embedded in the First Folio text with a performance workshop. You get the skills, your lines, your cues, you learn them, have two hours of one-to-one verse nursing from the specialist teachers, you come up with your own costume, 3 weeks later you arrive & perform! You have your scene partner, you know what you have to do & say – but how will they affect you? What will they say? This is acting in the very heart of the moment – and it is truly amazing to do!
Enrol on this 2 part course for the acting challenge of your life! Working with specialist Shakespeare text and acting tutor, Lizzie Conrad Hughes, and experienced text & voice teacher Dewi Hughes, you will learn fool proof skills for appreciating Shakespeare’s texts from a new perspective, and use everything you know about truthful connection, and being affected by your partner in the moment to achieve a performance.
Please Note: All participants will be treated as professional actors. As such, professional behaviour and respect is expected at all times. Participants are required to be off-book by the deadline set by the director. Failure to do so may result in student being removed from the course and not permitted to take part in the final performance workshop without refund of the course fee.
