act one

an acting training programme for stage & camera

programme brief

 

act one is a training programme for actors to  learn the basics of acting. the programme is an optimized mix of both theory and practice.  

 

we use an experiential learning approach where the actor has exposure to, and learns different theories, techniques and exercises by doing . the ‘learning by doing approach’ makes the learning more  personal, and ensures greater application & retention.  

the programme moves from solo sessions to group work. we begin with an intense and detailed understanding of the self on stage through carefully chosen exercises and role play modules. the programme leads up to and culminates in a group based activity, where the focus continues to be on the individual, and working alongside their skills and challenges.  

the learning is enhanced by detailed & interactive feedback  sessions that take place through the course of the programme.
