WORKSHOP – 20th JUNE

Tomorrow’s workshop will be facilitated by the very talented Corinna Reichle.

In this workshop we might not figure out the meaning of life or find answers to the universes biggest questions..

But it will ask and answer all the questions about a character. From getting into character to staying in character at all times – whether you perform solo in a 60 minute one woman show or have one shared line as part of a 50 men Greek chorus.
After this workshop you surely will be ready for it!

If you’re new, your first workshop is free! 🙂

Doors 6:45 – Start workshop: 7pm.
Synge Street CBS.
See you there!

WORKSHOP – 13th JUNE

We’re in for another treat!
Tomorrow’s workshop will be another one facilitated by our beloved interns Evelien Hofhuis and Kiefer Brink.
Two weeks ago they facilitated a workshop on “not acting” on stage. They researched how to, genuinely, enter a space or react to a situation without acting.
This workshop they will continue their research. They will research how to add emotion to a scene, when the goal is not to act. Can you completely imagine a feeling, to make a genuine representation of it on stage.
Please note, you can easily partake in this workshop, without having attended the previous one!
Tomorrow 7pm sharp! Synge Street CBS.

Crew Call

Its summer production time down here at Synge Street. Director Louise Dunne is set to take to a main production where no main production has gone before: Smock Alley Theatre’s Main Stage! The play will run from the 4th to the 8th of July but if it is going to do so, it will require your help.

We need people to help out in a number of key positions both in management and backstage. If you don’t have experience in a position that you are interested in then we are always happy to provide training. If you have ever worked backstage you know how fun and rewarding it can be to help put on a show and this promises to be quite the show! In particular, we are looking for Prop Master as a matter of priority, which involves assisting with the sourcing of props and taking charge of them during the performance.

If you wish to get stuck in or think you might be able to help out in promoting the play then please contact Louise at loudunne at gmail.com

Tickets for said production are available here!

WORKSHOP – 5th JUNE

Fearing work tomorrow? Don’t worry, we’ll be there to ease the pain, with a fantastic new workshop from Mr Noel Cahill!!

How can you play on stage? How can you perfect your staging? Let’s take a look at speed, rhythm and cadence within absurd theatre. This workshop is based around choreography and exaggeration. We will look at speeding things up and slowing things right down, fattening them til they burst, and even skipping whole chunks of action to tell an aesthetic story instead of just a story. We’ll try to apply the Lecoq technique of expand and reduce.

Hope to see you’ll there, and for all you newbies, the first one is free!
