Drama For Teenagers

Matt works from the premise ‘listen to your body and let it show you’. In "Drama For Teengers", participants will use music, dance, spoken word, action and stillness to create a contemporary piece of theatre.

Exploring the theories and praxis from Alexander, Chubback, Meisner and Stanislavsky the students will delve into a world of the unknown (or known) to find new ways to bring the work to life. Matt’s philosophy for creating ALWAYS takes you from your seat to your feet with the mantra ‘DON’T SAY IT! PLAY IT!’ Students will spend a fun filled week building a performance for the end of the week that will showcase their talent, skills and collaboration.

More about the course

Starting with team building and drama games, students will gather skills over the week. Time will be set aside each day for warm ups, skill building and rehearsing so that the result at the end of the week demonstrates the power of the performer.

Skills include:

• Mime, movement, gesture – using the body

• Voice – creating a character through voice and delivering dialogue

• Building characters through observation, masks and costume

• Creating and performing a story

Students will gain experience in performance preparation – settling those nerves; working with an   audience and understanding the theatre environment.

At the end of the week I hope they share my idea that a week spent performing is the absolute best fun!
