Wednesday 10th February
19:30 – 21:00 GMT
What’s the difference between acting & improvisation? How do they relate?
When I’m ‘acting’, do I need to wear tights or hold a skull?
In this taster session, we’ll be stepping into the craft of ‘acting’. We’ll dive into one of theatre’s answers to this question and introduce the Meisner Technique.
We’ll dip our toes into the skill that forms the initial entry into the actor experiencing their work, rather than pretending or demonstrating behaviour.
A taste of beauty, truth, emotional freedom and joy. Students can expect to gain a peek into the world of conservatoire level actor training and engage with the fundamental questions inherent in the craft.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Philippe is an acting teacher who is currently bringing his contemporary and compassionate approach to the Meisner Technique to the BA, Foundation and Visiting Semester programmes at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. A graduate of acting training at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Phillipe has also been teaching Meisner under the name of Drama Lab since 2017. Phillipe draws from his background performing improvisation with the likes of What’s Your Flavour? & Dinner Party (directed by Pravanya Pillay) & with The Delight Collective (directed by Imogen Palmer). Philippe believes the differences between scripted and improvised work aren’t as vast as one might think.
