Finding and Using The Action

Check back for info about the next workshop – email us if you’d like to be on our mailing list.

Based on Uta Hagen’s work as taught by Doreen Cannon.
Participants will either nominate a text to explore in the workshop or they will be given excerpts from well-known plays.

The aim is that participants will have an understanding of:
An Action within the framework of a whole play
An Action within a scene
An Action within a beat.
How to identify an Action.
Why use an Action
How Actions can be usefully applied to a text.
How Actions can be applied to silence on stage.
