you like an Acting / Drama workshop for your school, college or theatre
group? Daniel is a highly experienced workshop leader who has
successfully lead more than 1000 students through workshops. Daniel
can deliver a range of workshops or develop a bespoke workshop to best
suit your needs. Workshops range from basic introductions to Acting and
Drama to developing a deeper understanding of Acting Techniques through
the work of practitioners such as Stanislavsky and Michael Chekhov.
Possible workshops are:
Stagecraft and Contemporary Performance Practice
This workshop will look at developing and honing stagecraft
and presentation skills and address issues of good performance practice through
the practical and theoretical exploration of modern theatre practitioners from
Stanislavsky, Brecht and Copeau to Grotowski, Brook and Boal. The work will
take the form of practical games and exercises to develop student's abilities
to work effectively both individually and as part of a group, and thus develop
a sense of ensemble. The workshop will allow students to begin to move and work
practically and productively on stage.
Improvisation and Imagination
This workshop will explore the use and development of
creativity and imagination in rehearsal and performance. Through games and
exercises the students will focus on story telling and the creation of narrative
to develop a heightened sense of play and spontaneity. This workshop will also
explore various strategies for the creation of group-devised work, as well as
examining social interaction and problem solving through role-play.
Character and Text
This workshop will explore the nature of Character -
motivation, intention, emotion, inner and outer impulses and intuition - and
its development in relation to dramatic text. Through the practical examination
of differing theatrical styles and idioms students will be able to focus on how
performers are able to infuse life and meaning into words that are first
encountered on the printed page.
