Happy No Drama Tuesday everybody!!
In this week’s workshop, we will focus on devising a story and developing relationships from movement. Adapting this with character work, we will gain an understanding of stage presence; how to command and hold attention on stage, how to let go and be a generous actor.
If this is your first workshop with us, it’s free!
Doors: 6.45pm | Workshop 7pm | Synge Street CBS
Creating a character through physicality – starting from the outside, working our way to the inside.
In tomorrow’s workshop, we will be working on the creation of characters through our own physicality. We will explore different physical attributes to make our character’s unique, real and significantly different from your own physicality. Using the physicality as a starting point, we will develop the inner motivation and history of your character.
If this is your first workshop, it’s free!

We must regretfully declare that tonight’s workshop is canceled. But do not fear, the auditions are still going ahead if you are feeling that Tuesday no drama itch!
Auditions scheduled for tonight will be held in the Lantern Centre, just next to the school, on Synge Street.
If people would like to join in the audition process in lieu of a workshop we totally encourage that!
We are really excited to inform you about tomorrow’s workshop “Improv for Actors” facilitated by one of No Drama Theatre’s founding members Neil Curran.
When most people think of improv, they often (incorrectly) think of fast-paced comedy. However, improv is one of the most powerful tools at the actor’s disposal. In this workshop, we will focus on the slow art of improvised theatre. We will learn how to let go and be in the moment and discover, rather than create, characters and scenes through honest and authentic connection with our stage partners.
Participants will learn to read their stage partners and let go of any pressure to have to be funny or interesting.
If this is your first No Drama Workshop, it’s on us!

Our weekly workshops are back and we couldn’t be more excited!
Tuesday the 11th of September, the workshop sees the return of our resident Dutchie Renée van de Schoor, fresh off her demonic turn in She Kills Monsters this July!
During this workshop, we will focus on the basics of scene creation, and using the five W’s – Who, When, Where, What, Why. A perfect workshop for people new to acting, but with plenty of challenges for our veterans too.
If it is your first workshop, it is on us.
We look very much forward to seeing everyone again this Tuesday.

While we have your attention in the middle of this heatwave we thought it would be the best to mention that its the LAST workshop of the term! And that can only mean one thing…. it’s the ALL STAR WORKSHOP! Yes indeed, we have not only one but several facilitators giving you the lowdown on a variety of theatrical topics in the near tropical heat!
So please make your way down to the hallowed halls of Synge Street as we bid a fond farewell to this very memorable term with some new facilitating faces!

The last two workshops of the month will not be held in the school. “But what am I going to be doing that day” we hear you cry. Well do not fret, for our most dedicated members, we have an excellent chance to give back to the group!
Tuesday 22nd of May, we are bringing you a very special seminar on facilitating workshops! How do you translate your idea into a workshop? How do you reach the goal of your workshop? What is a goal? What is a good warm-up? A warm-up?! How do I motivate the participants? What if I don’t like my participants?
We will guide you through all aspects of putting on a workshop on a theme of your choosing, from the initial planning stages right through to rounding everyone into an acting circle in a prompt fashion!
As a way to give back to those who are so willing to give back to No Drama Theatre, we will be treating all attendees of the facilitator’s workshop**, who commit to doing a workshop, a free ticket to Pan Pan Theatre’s production of “The Rehearsal Playing The Dane” on Saturday the 26th of May!
