You don’t have to look far to find influences of Greek myths in our culture: from feature films to soap operas, from poetry and visual art to TV dramas and computer games; in no small part because the entire gamut of human experience is explored within its tales.

In this 12 week intensive acting course, we will visit the Greek Underworld, to devise our own contemporary tale, exploring ‘Pandora’s box’ and the inevitability of human’s inability to follow instructions. Please note this project heavily features elements of physical theatre alongside challenging/unsettling subject matters. Anyone concerned can contact us directly for more information. This will be a stylised and modern interpretation of the classic tale.

Participants who have some acting experience and are looking to advance their skills, will undertake a fun and rewarding process in which they develop their physical and vocal abilities, foster their creativity and imagination, create their own performance material from different stimuli, and learn techniques on how to build believable and stimulating characters for stage and screen.

Under the highly experienced guidance of Harrison you will:
