About this course

From Dame Maggie Smith to Carey Mulligan, from Sir Ian McKellen to David Tennant and Damian Lewis, British actors are world-renowned for their versatility and skill. But what does it mean to learn to act, British style? Certainly, many talented British actors began their careers on the stage. Open to all with a passion for theatre and performance, this course will give students a chance to develop and hone their own acting skills through traditional and innovative theatrical practice. Classes will include accent and dialect work, posture and movement technique, a sword-fighting demonstration and workshop and textual interpretation. The use of existing scripts will be combined with close group collaboration to devise original works for the stage, culminating in a public performance. The course includes a Masterclass with a top-flight British actor or director.
