Change of plan for tomorrow night’s workshop!

In place of Siobhan, Johnny Shortall will lead us unto the breach with a workshop based on getting the most from dialogue.

Workshop Details

Workshop: Exploring Status and Power in directing a scene for theatre

Time: 11:00am – 5:00 pm

11:00 – 12:00

This will consist of a warm up session of about 20 minutes. The warm up will aim at focusing on the theme of the day namely Power and Status in a fun, energetic and cerebal way.

On completion of the warm up there will be a number of exercises involved with looking at power/status, blocking and the power scale as we look towards directing and developing a scene.

12:00 – 1:00

All participants wil be given a chance to explore the different ways a scene may be approached and directed using blocking and the power scale. This will involve a great deal of participation from the people taking part and the audience watching. All ideas and suggestions will be explored. “Story-boarding” a scene may also be introduced (this would stretch the time to possibly 1:30)

1:00 – 2:00 (or 1:30 – 3:30) Break

2:00 – 5:00 ( or 2:30 – 5:30)

In the afternoon budding directors will have the chance to direct a scene, between 5 – 10mins long, with the focus on power and status within that particular scene using the ideas and information from the morning session. Actors will have a chance to figure out their character’s power/status and how it developes throughout a scene. These scenes will then be performed in front of the rest of the group where we will be looking for feedback on the blocking and “layout” of the scene.

Brian can cater for for 5 – 8 directors and 13 – 15 actors for this piece, please let us know when booking what your preference is.
