My 7 Week Courses in Creative Performance kick off tomorrow in Newcastle “Acting Fundamentals” for Beginners/Intermediate and “Pasvolsky Studio”for Upper Intermediate/Advanced…but if you don’t live in Newcastle but are interested in the work I also have Skype classes/tuition and will be holding in person workshops in Sydney in early 2016. So please, if this work speaks to you- do get in touch.
The purpose of my work is to introduce students, clients and participants to dynamic and soul shifting techniques, which are designed to radically shift individuals into a place of self empowerment, confidence and receptivity. It is not traditional Actor Training- it’s Creative Guidance.
In the Beginners Class, students work with Voice, Movement and Improvisation and focus on creating their own characters, characterisations and scenes. There is an emphasis on supportive performance and participants are often amazed at how quickly they can move into a place of self assurance, actualisation and creativity.
The Pasvolsky Studio focuses on a different “Master Teacher” or Practitioner each week, which is the emphasis of the learning. We then use that master teacher/practitioner or style as the basis of creating our own original content for performance. This all happens within the time frame of three hours.
This week in the studio our inspirational artist is Mike Leigh. We will look at the work, ethics, style and unique vision of Mike Leigh and then participate in exercises I have designed based on the improvisational techniques of ML. Students will create a character, based on somebody they know and then start improvisations/interviews with other ensemble members which will then develop into scenes and then into a performance.
We’ve got a very exciting 7 Weeks ahead of us, if this sounds like something you may like to access- please do get in touch. Best wishes, Claire x
