The class requires preparation & very good English language skills! “If I was allowed to train again to be an actor, but I was only allowed one teacher, it would have to be Mike Alfreds. To me he is a genius when it comes to acting and storytelling. I will spend my life trying to be true to what he perceives possible in the theatre. He is a true pioneer.“ – Mark Rylance [read more…]

Dreamwork for Actors and Artists with Ken Barnett (NYC)

In this workshop, participants will be engaging with fresh material from their unconscious as delivered by a dream. This potent material provides the opportunity to drop into our most intimate inner lives. Working physically, participants will be guided to ask the thinking mind to soften in order to invite the truth held in the body to express freely. Discover what is within you that is longing to be expressed in your creative work, and unveil the patterns of thinking or behavior that are limiting you in your capacity for full expression.

On-Camera Acting Workshop with Eric Reis (NYC)
Level I & II March/April | 4 Days | In Berlin

Eric Reis is an acting coach who’s been helping actors elevate their careers for the past 10 years. His approach is simple: he believes that being a great actor is good, but being a working actor is better – and, as many great actors who struggle to find employment know, one does not always translate into the other. The essence of the problem is that traditional acting training focuses on the actor’s ability to take the words on the page and transform them into a character with a rich and deep emotional life. All of which are extremely important. But without a clear understanding of how to apply those skills to the specific requirements of working in front of the camera, ultimately ineffective.

Solo Performance Masterclass with Director Geordie Brookman
End of June; 2023 | 4 Days | In Berlin

4 day workshop with a performance on the final day. 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.
