SHOSHIN is back!

After a series of sell-out workshops for TAG six years ago, Jeremy Stockwell returns with his most successful course so far, SHOSHIN FOR ACTORS

SHOSHIN is a Japanese word meaning Beginner’s Mind. It invites the practitioner to experience a playful, intelligent, open-minded and easy attitude to learning - even when working as an experienced practitioner.

Jeremy suggests that by letting go of right and wrong, concerns, judgement, and pre-conceptions, and by always returning to a state of 'Beginner's Mind' dramatic advancements can be more easily and readily attained.

In this day long course Jeremy introduces the concept of SHOSHIN for Actors. The work will be non-academic, practical, philosophical, and physically engaging. This is not a text based course, but script may sometimes be used. The day will help you develop, build, and sustain greater  knowledge and understanding of what it is to act with great confidence, authenticity, and ease. Perhaps redefining your definition of what it is to act on screen and stage. There will also be discourse, discussion, and questions and answers.

This unique and intensive course looks to advance your acting skills and enhance your ability to communicate more freely, authentically, appropriately on stage and off. It will also help you prepare for and commit to auditions and casting with less nervous anxiety and greater integrity.

The course invites you to come away from what you think you know. And, instead, to engage in a playful, re-assuring, and sometimes challenging process: thereby increasing your chances of personal and professional success.

Jeremy is a freelance theatre director and actor. He appears in the BBC Radio series How to Burn a Million Quid and had recently played Ken Campbell for and with Terry Johnson at Hampstead Theatre and Spike Milligan with Chris Larner at Edinburgh. He is soon to appear as philosopher Alan Watts in a theatre production in London. He also voices Watts’ series in audiobooks for Audible. He has devised and made productions for the National, the BAC, and theaters all over Europe and extensively in Japan. He has taught and directed at RADA for over 25 years and is a Performance Consultant and Acting Coach for the BBC. His book Acting: The Upside of Down is out soon.

In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities. In the expert's mind there are few.
