ABOUT

Our Actor's Workouts are spaces to workout and try out new approaches for actors in their numerous skills.

Peers help peers with supportive feedback and create the opportunity we need to perform in front of an audience to work our magic.

Currently we're offering the focuses:

COLD READING

REPPING THE REP

Future focuses could include: poetry, improvisation, Shakespeare, camera acting, self-taping, accent training, song clinic…

We’re aiming to offer multiple focuses per week step by step on different times during the day.

Bring a song/monologue from your repertoire to keep in shape, a new piece to try out or material you want to prep for an upcoming audition (maybe even a video conferencing audition or collect ideas for a self-tape). You'll have to provide the backing tracks on your side to play during the session when working on a song. Get in touch if you need help with a backing track.

Third

Perform your song/monologue to the whole group (optional)

Completely up to you if you want to perform your song again for the big group. No feedback given here just an additional opportunity to perform your piece.
