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!

The Workshops of Tomorrow – TUESDAY 20TH OCTOBER

Tomorrow’s 2 workshops will be facilitated by Patrick O’Callaghan and Kevin O’Flynn!

Patrick’s workshop will be “Using your Body’s Working Centre” – Through a series of exercises we learn to prepare our minds to be ready for a performance and explore how our bodies inform and communicate without the need for dialogue.

Kevin’s Workshop will be “Working on cold reading scripts, using duologues and monologues.”

N.B. We’re starting at 7pm sharp tomorrow (Tues 20th Oct) at CBS Synge Street.

See you there!

Workshops, Auditions & Workshop Auditions

Tomorrow (Tuesday 22nd) Noel Cahill will be running an audition workshop with a view to creating an entirely original piece.

The audition is in the form of an informal, loose improv workshop where everyone gets the chance to show their stuff.
It’s on the theme of ‘enemies’.

Six actors will be cast after the audition (3 male, 3 female) and from there we will write and improvise a piece on the above-mentioned theme with the intent of performing this piece in approximately two months in front of our peers at the main No Drama Workshop.

The actors will not be asked to write themselves, the writer/director will polish their words into a simple twenty minute piece which they will learn off and perform coming closer to November.
Please come along and audition if interested, no experience needed, just hard work and plenty of enthusiasm.

This audition workshop will be starting at 7pm sharp in CBS Synge Street alongside the usual No Drama workshop which is… all about auditioning!

Facilitated by Daniel O’Brien the workshop is titled “Auditioning: Face the panel! Be the panel! Fake audition competition in a real life environment.”
Learn how to deal with nerves, rejection, and preparation.
