Morning folks, How gorgeous is it out there today! Just as gorgeous as this week’s workshop facilitator! Our chair, Renée van de Schoor. It’s not easy running a theatre group amongst a pandemic, in fact, its one of the hardest business to keep going! But thanks to this lady and a hard-working committee, we never want to let you, or this wonderful craft down.
We will be continuing to work on the theme of directing, diving into the rehearsal process, character building and the different acting and directing styles one can work with.
The character building element can be very interesting for those working on their self-tapes for our upcoming production of Seminar (deadline: Friday 27th of November!)
Renée van de Schoor is a graduate from the University of the Arts Utrecht, with a bachelor’s degree in Theatre and Education and currently working for the prestigious Abbey Theatre.
Before joining No Drama Theatre, Renée has been active as an actor, director and assistant director, and has appeared in over 20 productions.
She has been extensively involved in No Drama Theatre, since joining in 2015, and has been director, actor, producer, production- and stage manager for numerous productions. After directing a sell-out production of ‘And Then There Were None’, she produced ‘Closer’. Furthermore, she appeared as Woman in ‘The Virtuous Burglar’, Lilly and Lilith in ‘She Kills Monsters’ and in performance piece ‘Heed, to the Mound’ as part of Dublin Fringe Festival. Renée was production manager of ‘The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance’ and directed ‘Haven’ as part of Scene + Heard Festival 2019.
Most recently, she directed ‘Mistaken’ as part of Short + Sweet Festival Dublin and was nominated for a price in the category ‘Best Director’.
In September, she started her biggest challenge so far, becoming the Chair of No Drama Theatre in the midst of the current pandemic. Eager not to let it stop us from what we do best! Hope to see you all this Tuesday!
Join us this Tuesday at 7pm on Zoom!
