Discover your truth - Respond organically - Deepen your understanding

Actors Lab is an advanced acting module offered at Darlo Drama.

Actor's Lab introduce's you to a more truthful and personalised way of connecting to your work as an actor.

Classes begin with studio based exercises aimed at; creating openness and availability, identifying blocks, releasing control, finding and creating energy and opening the senses to a full and rich connection to your work. Later classes involve an in-depth rehearsal period of a scene. Here you work in detail on; analyzing a script, interpreting punctuation and language, connecting personally to the world of the scene and listening and responding organically, truthfully and simply.
