Ensemble

Aspiring actors who want to develop and advance their  technique and creatives who want to learn to direct, stage manage and more are welcome to join this unique class offered by Unexpected Places.

Under the direction of Rosanna Sloan and Rosie Peters you will be encouraged to create, produce and perform in a supportive environment. 

 

This half term we will be working on acting technique, including how to understand a scenes content and emotion, sight reading and camera technique to produce individual showreels for our participants in collaboration with filmmaker Caroline James. At the end of this 5 week course you will be given your showreel as part of this course.

FAQs

Can I join just for one project? 

Yes, you can. Participants sign up for each term, two weeks in advance. If there are spaces available you can join for that specific project. You are committed only to a term at a time. 

 

I have an exam to study for - can I miss a week?

Sometimes it is hard to juggle everything you have going on. Just let us know if you need to miss a week; as long as it's not the week of a performance, we will be able to work around it.

What has this group done before?

This group is relaunching on 22nd June - we ran something similar pre-Covid. The previous groups last project was performing 'Chatroom' at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

 

What else can I get involved in?

Lots! Unexpected Places are rehearsing 'Looking Down on Me' in the Summer - you can come and see us rehearsing and be part of the creative process if you'd like to. We will also be working with this group and professional performers for a show at Christmas - more details soon!
