INTRODUCTION AUX TECHNIQUES DE THÉÂTRE

Ces ateliers s’appuient largement sur les méthodes d’enseignement de Stanislavsky, elles-mêmes utiliséees au sein de The Actor’s Studio. A travers l’amusement ludique, ils visent à libérer le corps, la voix et, plus généralement, l’expression à travers le dévelopement de la mémoire sensorielle. Ils sont aussi l’occasion de redécouvrir des pièces classiques et contemporaines pour parfaire sa culture théâtrale!

Le programme

Le thème principal pour ce semestre sera le Drame et le Method Acting que l’on va explorer à travers les divers types de drames.

Cours 1 : Positionnement scènique
Cours 2 : L’écoute théâtrale
Cours 3 : “Acting is Reacting”
Cours 4 : Voix et Intentions
Cours 5 : Jouer la scène
Cours 6 : Trouver la tension de la scène
Cours 7 : Captiver et garder le public
Cours 8 : Créer un personnage

Durant le trimestre, vous allez entièrement créer une ou plusières scènes courtes, que vous pourrez retravailler tout au long du trimestre pour saisir les différentes nuances d’un personnage. En support, vous allez pouvoir vous inspirer de différents genres dramatiques qui seront présentés à travers plusieurs grands auteurs. Il n’y aura pas de textes à apprendre l’avance. Le travail se fera pendant les séances. Les cours sont construits pour être abordables par tous et n’engagent pas à jouer sur scène à la fin du trimestre.

Toutefois, si vous êtes intéressé(e) par l’idée de monter sur les planches pour des scènes courtes ou longues, les cours sont l’endroit parfait pour tester les textes qui vous plaisent en prévision d’un éventuel café-théâtre !

Si c’est la première fois pour certain, il n’y a aucun problème pour faire un premier cours d’essai. Pour toutes questions, envoyez un mail à arnaud@stage-heroes.com

Venez donc découvrir toute la chaleur et la convivialité du théâtre au sein d’un groupe construit surtout pour se marrer

IMPROVISATION 101 (FULL SEMESTER)

8-session evening workshop with public showcase

Who is this workshop for?

Everyone. We welcome both actors and non-actors with an interest in improvisation, storytelling or people who just want to be quicker on their feet.
This workshop is open to anyone from all backgrounds.

Minimum age for admission is 16 and above.

Pre-requisites?

No.

Every lesson will be structured in three parts :

– A brief introduction of the concepts that will be studied and what will be expected of the – students in each exercise.

– Warm-Up

– Exercises – most of which will be systematically debriefed.

The course is essentially focused on Robert Gravel’s match format, Keith Johnstone style of improv and on understanding the codes of genres. The match format is both extremely fun and full of learnings. This format will teach the students how to avoid fear mechanisms and killing a story. The genres that will be explored include : action, drama, romantic comedy, spy movie, absurd theatre, Tennessee Williams, Shakespeare, etc.

Through the study of the match games, you will be able to understand the focus of any game and how to make it interesting for the audience. Also, the tremendous advantage of the match format is that it creates a team spirit. By the end of the course, the improvisers will be completely able to play a match in front of an audience which will be the final result of the course. Improvisers will be able to act both as a player or as the referee.

After the 8 weeks, competitive improv match team(s) will be formed, ready to take the stage.

Each semester culminates in a showcase of skills for the public.
Participants will be paid a percentage of the box office to incentivise professional work.

About this workshop
Life itself has been called the greatest improvisation of all. That is why Improvisational Theatre holds many nuggets of wisdom which can be applied to our lives, both as actors and non-actors.

Improvisational theatre is performance created in the moment. In its purest form, the dialogue, action, story, and characters are created in present time without a prepared, written script. Actors must think on their feet and access their creativity instantaneously.

Our Improv 101 one-day session is an introduction into the basics of improvisation that can enable you to overcome the fear of failure and trust your instincts.

This short intensive provides a holistic view of this form of acting, including performance as well as a deeper understanding of creative writing, storytelling and directing. At the end of this session you will find yourself invigorated with a passion for the spontaneous and creative.
