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.

Hosted by Benjamin Froehlich and Madeleine Leslay

INPUT EDITIONS

FOCUS DETAILS

 

“Cold reading”

First

Cold reading of a scene allocated by host. Audience are all the participants of the session. Script will be sent as PDF via chat on ZOOM. You’ll get 5min prep time for setting up devices (or print) and a quick brush through.

Please: Get in touch if you like to get the scene before due to dyslexia or similar reasons, it’s completely up to you in what way you want to challenge yourself. The challenge is yours to set. You know best what is too much or not in accord with your experiences of cold reading situations.

Second

Workshop given scene in breakout rooms (20min)

Third

Present worked on scene to the whole group for a second time (no feedback)

Rounding Up

Stay on for Discussions / Socialising / Networking (optional)

 
 

“Repping the Rep”

For the first few editions we will focus on getting the set up right for songs. But we will invite spoken monologues soon to the same session to strengthen the bond between acting and singing.

First

Quick meet&greet in the whole group

Second

Split up into breakout rooms of 3 people where individuals have 20 min each to perform their song and collect feedback and workshop ideas.

Bring a song from your repertoire to keep in shape, a new song to try out or a piece 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 your performing. Get in touch asap if you want to get a backing track created by us (fee applies).

Third

Present your song to the whole group (optional)

We recommend this for rep songs and audition pieces - but not for new songs or uncut songs. You challenge yourself. No feedback given here - you can ask for written feedback in the chat.
