Giles Foreman takes participants through a thorough process to develop characters and scenes. Students will learn the extraordinary script analysis methodology of Christopher Fettes, the founder of the Drama Centre London. They will be introduced to the character analysis work of Yat Malmgren, inner and outer life, how to subtly play the subtext, how to become completely organic and connected to impulse, to use oneself and ones‘ own experiences and emotional resources to bring truth and organic reality to a scene, triggers and sense memory work.
We will team you up with a scene partner and suggest a scene for you to work on. Then connect you with your partner to work on the scene and character prior to the workshop.
