Text and Performance

Tonight I start a series of master classes with the young people at Creative Spark in Bishopbriggs. I love workshopping on bringing text to performance and especially love seeing scenes come to life when young actors take big leaps.

I’ll be putting to good use all the teaching I received from John Adams (co-founder of Paines Plough and a previous Artistic Director of Birmingham Rep) and Max Stafford-Clark (co-founder of Joint Stock and a previous Artistic Director of the Royal Court, London) during my MA studies. With script extracts lined up from Scarfed for Life by Martin Travers, DNA by Dennis Kelly, The Beauty Manifesto by Nell Leyshon and Passing Places by Stephen Greenhorn, and some games and exercises to get right into what is really happening, it is sure to be a fun few weeks with this exciting Young Company!
