This term’s teaching theme – “Ensemble”

The theme for this term is ensemble.  This is a French word that you will often hear in the world of theatre.  A group of actors (or singers/dancers/musicians) is often referred to as ‘an ensemble’ simply meaning a group but it also has a deeper meaning for actors.  It is about working intensely with your fellow performers and being acutely aware of and responsive to the group.  This makes acting incredibly alive and allows the audience to be transported into a complete fictional world.
Your teachers will be leading you through a series of ensemble exercises and techniques that will demand total sensorial, mental and physical involvement; when we see great ensemble acting on stage it looks effortless but it is in fact very hard work to achieve!  You will get to explore ensemble acting by working on chorus texts from ancient Greek tragedies and comedies.
We will also continue working on duologues and later in the term there will be duologue competition nights with celebrity guest judges!

Our classes are shaped by our amazing teachers and you! They can explore improvisation, script work & acting exercises. You can create short performance pieces of your own. There are also opportunities to take part in performances from monologue evenings to our annual productions.
Throughout the year we also invite members to audition for the agency.
