The Actor’s Toolbox

A Library Theatre Company Workshop

Katie Lewis, Resident Assistant Director at the Library Theatre, will be running a series of acting workshops called The Actor’s Toolbox for those wanting to gain more experience or brush up on their acting skills. She will be exploring practically how an actor can make use of various techniques and draw on them when in rehearsal and working on a character.  

Exploring Laban: Wednesday 5th May – Sold out.

A practical movement and voice workshop exploring Laban’s methodologies and how they might be applied in the rehearsal room with character work and approaches to text.

*Exploring Improvisation *Thursday May 20th – Places still available.
The workshop will be divided in to two sections. The first part will explore general approaches to improvisation and the second will look at how it can be used as a tool in the rehearsal room, when working on a specific text.  We will be using Arthur Miller’s play ‘All My Sons’, so all workshop participants will need to have read the play.  Photocopies of scenes will be provided.

*Exploring Actioning: *Wednesday 26th May – Sold Out.

What constitutes an action? How can you action a monologue/soliloquy? We will be exploring and demystifying the practice of actioning by breaking down various scenes and assessing the value of this technique in the rehearsal room.
