Stacey's Workshops


    Grotowski Physical Acting Worskhop

    , , Advanced / Acting, , , , ,

    Polish theatre practitioner Jerzy Grotowski is best known for his intense actor training processes in the 1960s and 70s. Grotowski and his actors experimented with the physical, spiritual and ritualistic aspects of theatre, the nature of role, and the relationship between actor and spectator.

    This workshop is designed to break free of limitations and realise your full potential as an actor on stage. Students will explore physical and vocal exercises designed to express what we think and feel through movement, spoken text and stillness. The work will give actors physical skills for fully expressing their imaginations and their personalities.

    Please bring:
    -A memorized monologue/text
    -Clothing you can move in
    -Water

    Roy Hart Vocal Work

    , Intermediate, Advanced / Acting, , Musical Theatre, , ,

    “The voice is the muscle of the soul.” - Roy Hart

    In the "Roy-Hart-work" we explore the voice in all its forms of expression. We will examine the relationship between voice and body as well as explore varying ways into text, character, emotional connection to language, and performance power. This workshop is beneficial for acting and musical theatre students alike. We will explore the deep connection between the voice and body:

    • To become aware of your breathing and develop the breath-body-voice connection
    • To connect to your body
    • To expand the possibilities of your voice: timbres, colors, resonance, registers…
    • To play and improvise with your voice, imagination and emotions

    Please bring:
    -A memorized monologue/text
    -Clothing you can move in
