We start 2016 with classes from Karen Henthorn. The classes sold out within an hour of them going on sale but don't panic - Karen has promised she'll be back with more classes very soon. These classes represent the first BLOCK which will begin in January. Following this will be a series of one-off MAPsterclasses with indivuiduals specialising in their own field followed by a new 6 week block...


Scene Study with Simon Naylor


This block will take place over 6 weeks, and allow actors to focus on tackling a contemporary script from day-one up until performance. Working in intense detail on just one scene, the course will start from researching the play and the world in which it is set, exploring the characters and then using the techniques of Stanislavski, Meisner and more to really hone the actors ability to listen, respond and remain truthful in the space.


At the end of the course, actors should have greater understanding of working on play/TV scripts and have gone some way to cementing their own process. In reality, certainly in TV, such a process is essential due to the fast-pace at which things move. The course will mirror the training at established Drama UK schools across the country and provide an individual training for each actor. As such, no actor will be asked to adopt the process of someone else, but instead, mould and craft their own process using what works best for them.


PLEASE NOTE: The course is a progressive course and work will be done primarily in pairs, running to the model of professional actor training. Whereas we fully appreciate that there are some unavoidable situations, we would ask that students only sign up to this course who can FULLY commit to the full 6 weeks. In missing a week, not only will your work suffer, but your absence will have a detrimental effect on your working partner.
