The Acting programme will be taught in English and will be led by current IAB lectures. The daily workshops consisting of Movement for Actors, Voice into Text and Contemporary Scene Study.
Movement for Actors – Acting is a whole-body process. In the movement session, students will engage physically with their imagination and the physical dimensions of roles through effective body language.
Voice into Text – These sessions will explore the technical aspects of voice, including accents, the flow of words and the projection of the text.
Contemporary Scene Study – Using the work of Konstantin Stanislavski and his followers, students will develop an imaginative understanding and interpretation of character and text. These classes will encourage students to explore their own personal approach as actors. The work will be developed through both group and individual games and exercises. A varied selection of material will be chosen to suit each student.
An example timetable for the Summer intensive can be seen below. A condensed version will be used for the Easter session.
