ACTING MASTERCLASS | WORKSHOP with KEN REA (Guildhall School of Music & Drama)
Achieving presence , Audition technique
Ken Rea’s teaching focuses on how actors can unlock their creativity and presence to project their unique individuality.
This intensive workshop draws on a variety of sources, including little known eastern techniques. It shows you how to achieve a more compelling presence, have greater ownership of the text and maintain a relaxed but vital energy, even in stressful situations such as castings, auditions and the pressures of filming. It also explores how you can attain specificity and greater detail in character choices.
In auditions you will learn how to stay focused, open and spontaneous. In performances you will learn how to raise the level of your acting by bringing fresher, more imaginative interpretations to a role, keeping the audience totally engaged.
„Ken Rea gives you, like an athlete, a state of readiness so you may seize your moment when it comes: either in character or as yourself. He talks about energy and enthusiasm and how these can be nurtured in you so you will be more hireable ‘in the room’.” – Damian Lewis (Homeland, Wolfs Hall)
