I have observed leading teacher directors in the US and UK and Richard shares with them that facility to guide actors through the guff to the heart of the scene.
This workshop will find new levels of emotional complexity for a character and discover what makes your character funny. Explore techniques that raise the bar on achieving more heightened outcomes.
Delivering the story is the actor’s primary focus. You will be empowered to engage your audience with the real drama in a very real way. You will also learn how to bring the humour to any scene.
Nowhere else is there such a clear understanding of the simple tools that create comedy
Actors will work out how to define and remedy the acting issues that confront them.
Being able to work fast demonstrates that you have a clear understanding of the actor's job and that you have the professional skills to do it
Be part of a course that takes your work to a new professional HIGH while bringing the fun back into acting
Richard loves conducting the Summer Intensive. It is exciting to focus so intensely on the needs of a small group (maximum group size of 8). He loves the huge leaps forward in understanding and skill that actors achieve in this environment.
After the huge success of "The Memory of Water" that Richard directed at Chapel Off Chapel (Nov 2017) he is keen to share the tools that were used to make this production so funny. Audiences loved it. Max Davine wrote in his blog on goodvibemelbourne.com "The realism he achieves is as funny and heart-wrenching, sometimes both at the same time, as in life."
Richard believes comedy and drama have many elements in common. The Rehearsal Room's acting principles delivered an outstanding result at Chapel Off Chapel with "THE MEMORY OF WATER" becoming a hit.
THIS COURSE STARTS - Friday 30 March 2018
