Workshop – 19th January

SEX IN THEATRE: An introduction sex’s strange position on the stage.”
This week’s workshop will be ran by Noel Cahill!

Here’s a message from Noel…

“Ooooooooh! Yaaaaaaa! You’re going to have a wonderful time. We are going to just do it all. We’ll start off with some foreplay – trying to make the director and actor more comfortable with sexual and physical contact on stage – then on to third-base funfun with a look into ways of giving the illusion of sex on stage – next we’ll get our pants off and down to the business of more experimental and mime-based ways of portraying sex in any scene and finally we’ll round it off with the real thing, the big O, the money shot, the roll over (out of breath) and say ‘I fucking love you’ – the subtle development of genuine sexual tension in an original piece made by you. You’ll have your fun and that’s all that matters, No Drama wants to satisfy you.”

Workshops take place 7 PM every Tuesday at CBS school Synge Street. First timers get in for free so no excuse to not give it a go!

Winter Break

Festive greetings all!

We are going to take a little break over the Christmas and there will be no workshops for the next two weeks. No Drama will return to our regular programming in 2016 on Tuesday January 5th.

Workshop – 8th December

Regular No Drama programming is back tomorrow with two Workshops!

The first will be facilitated by Dan McCormack.

“Justification turns facts into experience. Each person justifies according to his talent, and the justification is his talent.” – Stella Adler

An actor has their choices and their imagination; therein lies their talent. This will be a feedback based session and is aimed at our more experienced members and those looking for a challenge.

The second will be facilitated by Claire Cassidy.

“Integrating Passive Anger into your Performance”

Using different shades and subtleties on the anger spectrum makes all the difference to the impact of your performance. Through some deadly games we will examine a variety of ways to mine those seething rage feelings; from our own experiences and then, through these discoveries, how we can enhance our performance, with tone and body language choices.

N.B. We’re starting at 7pm sharp Tuesday (8th Dec) at CBS Synge Street.
See you there!

Harvey Wraps

Thank you to all who came out to see our production of Harvey in Smock Alley.

We had a wonderful week and the play was a resounding success with 4 sellouts over the 5 nights.

Friends and families of the cast and crew, tourists from Boston and London and general fans of the film went home with a host of smiling faces and a greater appreciation of the important issue of befriending a 6 foot tall rabbit.
