Text and Movement Workshop



We are delighted to announce that we will be offering free text and movement workshops for professional actors looking to enhance and develop their skills.

We will be hosting two workshops with actor, writer and mover, Nat McCleary.

Nat will lead a series of exercises which will allow participants to experiment in listening to the body’s impulses. These exercises will allow participants the chance to play around with text to identify the natural “voice” of their own physicality and learn how to allow it to consciously contribute to performance with text. 

Participants will be asked to prepare a short piece of text of their choosing to work with in the workshop. You do not need to have any prior experience in movement-based work to attend these workshops.

The workshops will be held on Sat 27 July.

Workshop One: 10am – 1pm

Workshop Two: 2pm – 5pm
