This weekend workshop focuses on the Art of Relating, which trains actors to create believable characters and emotionally connected relationships on screen. Working in pairs with scripts, actors learn the Five Arts of Film Acting – the Art of Concentration, the Art of Not Knowing, the Art of Acceptance, the Art of Giving and Receiving and the Art of Relating, which maximises instinctive and creative choices and trains actor to bring their own personality to the screen.
