at University of Ottawa.
After many requests, Once Upon a Kingdom Theatre is glad to offer the Acting Workshop for adults (18 and up)!
Fast reaction and response to various everyday situation, good intuition and positive attitude when interacting with people (family, friends, co-workers), rich imagination and confident behaviour are key to success in life! This workshop will develop your skills to react and respond quickly to unexpected situations that happen in life, interact with people easily and intuitively, use your imagination and learn to relax when performing on public.
For experienced actors this workshop will push beyond the actor’s existing parameters, strengthen actor’s improvisation skills, stage presence, range of movements, transformation, immediacy and connection with a partner on stage and with the audience.
This workshop is created for people with any level of acting experience (from beginners to professionals). Acting skills that you will gain during the workshop will be useful on the theatre stage as well as in everyday life.
