Presented by The Actors' Workshop Bryn Holding
Using a selection of classical, contemporary and poetical texts Bryn will guide you through an exploration of the actors connection to text; using the written word in form and structure as the foundation of your acting choices, finding the need to speak, forming character through language and ensuring we serve up the text at its best. This masterclass should leave you thirsty to explore the black and white etchings on the page more deeply, to pay closer attention to the innate gift of language and to encourage you to surrender yourself to the words – allowing them do the acting work for you
