Presented by The Actors' Workshop
Following their inspirational workshop with our foundation course students in November, The Actors’ Workshop is delighted to welcome the immensely exciting and innovative FOURTH MONKEY TRAINING COMPANY back for a professional masterclass – aimed at actors and theatre makers.
Places will be strictly limited – so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
In physics, if you talk about ‘flow’ it is defined as ‘a transference of energy’. Fourth Monkey’s Flow workshop is designed for participants to experience the transference of their attention, their physical energy and their skills to serve the moment and ensemble they are playing with.
The initial warm-up and exercises will provide a common language of play and boldness which, as an ensemble, we will then use to support the creation of ensemble material, to finally be re-focused with direction. This process will include:
- A warm-up designed to build and engage an ensemble made up of individuals.
- Exercises inspired by Viewpoints, Contemporary dance, Meisner, and Authentic Movement to allow impulsive responses and truth to take the place of contrived or pre-conceived choices.
- Solo, partner and group exercise on content building, which can be transferred into a devising room
