Actors will work in scene study pairs. Short 3-minute scenes from key 20th century play text & an allocated role will be sent to all those selected and lines must be learnt prior to the workshop. Up on your feet you’ll work with Dalip on breaking a scene into actions (use of transitive verbs) with a focus on emotionally ‘affecting’ your partner, ‘authenticity’ of relationship and ‘listening’. This will be a creative and open space where actors feel safe to take risks and find their way towards a practical , physical understanding of what it means to be in a state of ‘truthful presence’ with the other. The work draws upon the practices of Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov and Sanford Meisner.
