Date 19/02/17
Price £57

Director Laura Attridge and movement director Niamh McKernan join forces for this exciting workshop exclusively for opera singers.

The workshop will give you the opportunity to develop different ways of building a character from scratch, and to examine in more depth any techniques you have already encountered as a performer.

This practical session will involve an exploration of both psychological and physical methods, giving you a variety of tools with which to approach your next role and inviting you to enrich your own craft as an individual artist. The afternoon will also include advice on how to most effectively bring these tools into a rehearsal room, a performance or an audition.

SUITABLE FOR: Opera Singers.

LEVEL: Intermediate. Intended for singers who have completed or are still undertaking conservatoire/YA training, and are already working professionally.
