Fall Actors Intensive with Director Geordie Brookman
October 21st to 23th; 2022 | 3 Days | In Berlin

Join director, teacher and dramaturg Geordie Brookman for a three days acting intensive focussed on a combination of scene building and physicality. We will provide participants with a carefully chosen contemporary short play (either a 2 or 3 hander) and, with Geordie’s guidance, will analyse, rehearse and present the works by the end of the intensive. Using Geordie’s rigorous ‘mapping’ approach and physical devising methods drawn from his time working with Frantic Assembly, Force Majeure and Circa participants will unlock the deepest layers of the text and combine it with compelling physical choices. The intensive is for intermediate and advanced actors who need to either have a level of professional experience, tertiary training or have taken Geordie’s ‘Page to Stage’ or ’Space and Physicality’ workshops previously.
