Narativ Listening and Storytelling Workshop with Dan Milne and Jane Nash

Everybody has a story. What's yours? Learn to communicate any idea or experience effectively through the art of personal storytelling. The Narativ Technique centres around 6 principles that touch on both the art and science of storytelling and guide you in crafting stories that are impactful, articulate and distinct. These skills translate into personal statements and interview situations but, more importantly, have the capacity to surprise and enlighten you, providing a rich seam of material to draw on for your own creative practice.  www.narativ.uk

On-Camera Acting with Duane Daniels

Led by veteran theatre, film and TV actor Duane Daniels (Veronica Mars, Tremors, Kate Brasher) this course will help you craft confident, dynamic and truthful performances for the camera. Simulating the professional audition environment, students will be given scripts in advance and asked to prepare a performance to be shared with the group. Duane will provide individual feedback, share tips, teach technique and the whole group will benefit from watching the performances of others.

Historical evidence shows that Shakespeare’s actors never rehearsed. They were given only their own parts: cue scripts that consist of their character’s lines, and the two or three words that cue each line.  Simon will use this original practice performance technique to unlock the language in Shakespeare’s plays. By looking for the detailed clues for actors hidden in the text, you will gain insight into character and motivation, bringing speeches to life and truly engaging with the words.
