HIT LAB SUMMER INTENSIVE 2020

Due to popular demand HIT LAB will be offering intensive theatre training this summer, in July.

From Script to Stage

A one month intensive course for July 2020, presented by Jessica O’Hara Baker and Joseph Sherlock of HIT Lab.

Tuesdays and Thursdays
19:00-22:00
7th to the 30th of July
Public performance on Friday 31st  July

From Script to Stage is a professional development course for actors. Over 8 sessions of 3 hours each we will prepare a play for performance, while taking a deep dive into the techniques and processes which are usually taken for granted in a professional production.

We will:

  1.     Work through the first table read of a script and walk you through the actor’s foundational work at the beginning of a process.
  2.     Explore how to get into your own body and how to consciously use your physicality and voice develop your character.
  3.     Practice getting a scene “on its feet” and the different techniques that you can employ to make this productive.
  4.     Develop the skills and mindset to get through those times when a rehearsal process can stagnate, including memorisation techniques, creativity exercises, and how to be a good collaborator with your director and cast.
  5.     Look at how getting off book can be energising rather than frightening, and how you can take notes constructively.
  6.     Examine different schools of thought about performance technique (Meisner, Stanislavsky, etc.) and how you can use them as tools to improve the production.
  7.     Focus on committing to choices so that the show will be cohesive and stable.
  8.     Polish the production, collaboratively and with the leadership of a director.

The course is appropriate for people early in their careers and serious students who want the space to continue to develop their skills. It will be limited to 10 students.
