"Tripping on the Tongue": a workshop in text and improvisation @ The Actors Centre

  • The Actors Centre 1A Tower Street London, WC2H 9NP United Kingdom (map)

As actors, we are often inhibited by preconceived ideas about how text should be spoken, and so block our particular and spontaneous engagement with it. Incorporating physical, vocal and improvisatory exercises, we will play with reversing this block, sparking vivid and visceral life into characters and scenes – monologue and group, contemporary and classical, comic and dramatic. 

Participants will gain a renewed sense of the pleasure in playing with text, with tools and confidence to absorb text more physically and less intellectually, provoking and developing instinctual and distinctive responses in the rehearsal room and beyond.
