Scene Study, Impulse and Actions

with Simon Naylor



This block will take place over 6 weeks, and allow actors to focus on tackling a contemporary script from day-one heading to performance level. Working in intense detail on just one scene, the course will start from researching the play and the world in which it is set, exploring the characters and then using the techniques of Stanislavski, Meisner and more to really hone the actors ability to listen, respond and remain truthful in the space.


At the end of the course, actors should have greater understanding of working on play/TV scripts and have gone some way to cementing their own process. In reality, certainly in TV, such a process is essential due to the fast-pace at which things move and with fewer stage-acting training courses than ever, it offers a unique look into the processes needed to succeed. The course will mirror the training at established Drama UK schools across the country and provide an individual training for each actor. As such, no actor will be asked to adopt the process of someone else, but instead, mould and craft their own process using what works best for them.
