THE SKILFUL ACTOR: BUILDING YOUR ACTOR’S TOOLKIT

Do you feel you have no clear way of working on a speech, scene or character whether for a self tape, live audition, rehearsals or filming? Or do you feel that you have so many ways of working that you now feel overwhelmed? Would you like a clear method which you can customise to build your own personal toolkit?

Then join me for this six week course. We will build key tools in relation to breaking down a speech or scene and making the text your own, finding subtextual shifts so that you can approach any text with confidence an begin to build a nuanced performance that is both deeply truthful and highly engaging.

EXPRESSIVE ACTOR: CHARACTER VOICE


As a child we have enormous vocal freedom. We give voices to our toys and we take on different characters in our games. But, as we grow, we lose our vocal playfulness - through shyness or a fear of getting it “wrong”. Or we may keep our playfulness but find that our voice gets exhausted and strained - especially if we are doing a great deal of voice over work.

This series of 6 sessions allows you to regain a sense of playfulness whether you are new to or experienced in voice acting.

It also gives you tangible ways of extending your vocal choices and building character voices in a healthy way so that you can safely create a wider range of character voices.

The Inner A-Lister: Clearing Limiting Habits & Beliefs

Do you feel that you are held back by limiting habits and beliefs? Do you feel hampered by anxiety and stress or by low mood and lack of motivation? Have you tried many ways to resolves these issues?

Then join me for this five week course. Working with the felt sensations in the body rather than at the level of thought or emotion you will learn how to rewire your nervous systems and begin to unwind limiting habits and beliefs so you can live from your true, expansive, present self rather than your past limited self.

I've been able to use my breath to let my body know that it's safe. Focusing on the 'good place' and using my breath to calm my nervous system has been a game changer in my life - Marged

The sessions enabled me to revisit long past emotional/traumatic incidents safely, so that I now viewed them from fresh and curiously more sensitive perspectives. Consequently, I have felt better able to move on with my life and embrace change - Peter

The sessions have really been transformative…They have helped guide my choices in terms of who I spend my time with and where I want my energy to be - Molly
