Our monthly Melting Pot this time featuring a workshop on Acting Technique with Gareth Harris.
Gareth will introduce 3 simple exercises that will, with practice, develop and enhance the following elements for actors:-
1) A sense of ease when performing or in an audition.
2) Vividity of imagination
3) Emotional triggers
4) A sense of “belonging” in the scene.
5) Public Solitude (This came up at the great class run by Cari Barley)
Bringing a learnt, short monologue will be advantageous.
Gareth has worked as an actor and coach for 27 years. His students constantly land roles in film, TV and theater. In the last 3 years 34 of his students have gained places at drama schools of their choice including RADA, CSSD, East 15, NIDA and Mountview. As an actor he’s worked with high profile directors and actors Matthew Warchus, Sean Mathias, Ed Thomas, Helen Mirren, Alan Rickman, Albert Finney, Richard Griffiths and comedians Frank Skinner and Jack Dee.
