“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, and then finding myself there.” ~ Meryl Streep

Impulse To Impulse: The Work of Michael Chekhov

Impulse to Impulse - Adult 10 week course – Following the work of the celebrated theatre practitioner Michael Chekhov, Actor/Director Richard Youman, will guide you from character preparation and text work, into performance. Participants will embark on an adventure to the landscapes of the creative imagination. Throughout the course you will explore the resonance of the actor’s voice, the power of the ensemble voice, the creative body and the purity of movement, and the raw impulse to impulse connection to text through our own inner poetry, in relation to the audience. We will face the challenge of becoming artistic assistants to one of the longest epic poems of the Romantic period “The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, filled with poetic riddles, songs, chants and the spoken charms of an old sailor as he tells his story to a hopeful wedding guest.

Course Day: Monday, 20.00 - 22.00h

The Actor's Journey Continues: Character Creation

SHOWTIME is happy to introduce the actor/acting coach Susanne Gschwentder. Trained at the East 15 Acting School in England with a Masters in Theatre Pedagogy, Susanne has over 13 years of experience as a professional artist; including a main role in the TV series “The Quest”, made for ABC by the creators of “Lord of the Rings”. Susanne would like to use this semester to work with you on how to create a character from scratch, to explore different aspects of a character: how does my character move, talk, interact with people, drink a cup of tea, wait for a bus...? Through character based-improvisation and physical, and vocal exercises, our aim will be to create an end of semester performance based on the characters we have found together in class.
