StrikeUp Theatre: The Actor & Truth -The Actor & The Audience

£135 for 12 weeks

THE ACTOR &TRUTH with Abbey Gillett

"Give up character and use yourself"- Michael Shurtleff.

What makes you YOU and, most importantly, how can you use this in performance? We will employ a variety of techniques to tap into your truth and then decant into the world of either a Shakespearean or contemporary play. The result will be work that is alive, honest and creatively unique! Final week: informal round-robin scene sharing.


'The Actor's Act is an invitation to the Spectator' – Jerzy Grotowski

Theatre's greatest power is it's LIVE-ness. To ignore the living breathing audience before us is the actor's greatest sin; to engage and excite and inspire them; our highest purpose. Learn tools and techniques to connect with your audience in different performance contexts. Two weeks monologues, two weeks duologues, two weeks scenes; 6 weeks of audience love.

A selection of groups will perform every 2nd week; everyone will be invited up at least once.
