Time: 10.30 - 17.00

In this brand new 5 day workshop TAG actors work with Director Simon Godwin to combine physical theatre, contemporary writing and Shakespeare to uncover a new kind of ease and presence for you as an actor.

This workshop aims to free you from the pressure to "deliver a performance" - and to instead discover a deepened sense of confidence and truth.

The week long structure will allow Simon to give detailed attention to each participant, with the emphasis being on the actor’s craft rather than a single text.

The week will be an exhilarating, playful and enriching journey into the power of expression, spontaneity and shared creation.
