Join The Wheel’s Co-Directors Kevin Johnson and Amanda Collins, with assistance from Danny Laine, to explore the actor’s craft and help you develop your acting core skills.
This class provides high quality acting training, focused on your development as actors and performers. These classes will cover a variety of skills whilst staying true to Barbican Theatre Plymouth ethos of a safe environment to explore your creativity. These classes are run by The Wheel and work alongside the other ReBels Training classes, providing you more focused skills. They can also be an independent session if you are unable to join in with ReBels on different evenings.
Whilst working cohesively as a company, this training opportunity also provides the space to focus on each individual actor. Working throughout the year on building confidence, a creative voice and establishing strengths through individual coaching will empower each individual to make decisions about how to pursue further artistic training or work. We acknowledge that as actors you have an aim to pursue a wide range of career paths, and that their goals may shift while training.
These first three sessions will focus on ‘Approaches to Monologues’: how to navigate the text; explore your character – who are they and what’s their reason for speaking; and ensure a dynamic and alive performance. This would be essential for those looking to audition for roles or training courses. This is also the perfect starting place to explore and improve working with text in general.
These Acting Technique classes are for ages 15-25.
