Participants will be provided with a choice of texts before the sessions and they are able to choose a text that they connect with. Sessions are will take place every alternative week in order to provide participants with the space and time to prepare for each session as they choose a monologue to prepare for each session.

Detailed Schedule Outline:​

Session 1: Marceau and Mime

This workshop will focus on physicality and developing a strong physical vocabulary for communication. After developing a solid foundation in principles of mime, the workshop will culminate in a mime performance of a text by Marcel Marceau.

Session 2: Linklater and the Voice

This workshop explores the voice and ways of using the voice as a starting point to access a character in performance. Here Linklater's Resonance Ladder will be applied to monologues chosen by the participants before the workshop as a way of developing variation and illuminating character objectives throughout the piece.

Session 3: Laban and the Efforts

This workshop will start off with an investigation into Laban's Eight Efforts, both physically and vocally. Participants will apply their explorations to a monologue text of their choice.

Session 4: Stanislavski and Duologues

This workshop harnesses Stanislavski's approach to text, using techniques like Given Circumstances, Magic If, Objectives and Emotion Memory as a means of developing a realistic approach to character and scene.

Session 5: Pinter and Scenes

This workshop focuses on subtext and how to approach subtext in a performance.
