How do we preserve the freedom and ease of our rehearsal discoveries in the pressurized context of a live audition?

How do we generate playfulness and spontaneity in this competitive, artificial environment?

We will work with the four brothers, triplicity/creative frame and the architecture of performance to support your creative individuality . We will pay particular attention to your identified ,specific blocks/freezes and difficulties in the audition context.

We will look at the ‘how’ of translating the directors instructions  into images, colours and spontaneous impulses that you can act

Our purpose is to strengthen your grasp of the Chekhov tools – breath ,ease and relaxation -enabling you maintain the lightness and grace of your work under pressure.
