This is the second in a series of stand alone workshops - enrol in the date that best suits you. Over the course of the evening you will get both a great acting workout and receive an introduction to running your own scene group. A scene group is a practice group actors can set up on their own (with some venue/ admin /mentoring support from Equity) productively practising, stretching and growing their craft, in a peer run (cheap) practice that really does get tangible results in outcomes over time. Be empowered to:
  1. Grow your ability beyond the work and auditions you may be being offered currently,  take control of your own learning and growth. 
  2. Learn not only to make each run better, but that each run can be DIFFERENT, and JUST as good, EVERY TIME. Become more irreverent and relaxed in your work.
  3. Change habits and move through blocks over time.
  4. Continue to work your craft without spending large amounts of money, in a peer supported environment.
