For Directors and Actors
Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July, 9 am to 5 pm.
Sunday 8th July, 9 am to 5 pm.
The FLASH Directors’ Workshop will focus on the practical skills every director needs.
On Saturday you’ll explore the role of the director. How to recognise what play you’re in (genre and style). You’ll work on interpreting a script and breaking it down, finding character and relationships, working with actors, and using the space - which includes approaches to blocking.
On Sunday, you will be joined by the actors as a combined workshop. Working in small groups, you’ll put these skills into practice, with specific exercises in directing, then observing and critiquing each other’s work.
