Workshops by Request scheduled for May 2014 include:
Directing in Calgary
On May 4th, Morpheus Theatre hosted a one-day directing workshop with Kevin McKendrick, which explored a variety of directing subjects, including: an actor’s role versus a director’s, helping actors perform in harmony with your vision, and building a unified team. Participant James Hutchinson (@lifeisanact) tweeted “Great tools & techniques for directing plus I can apply many of them to the writing process.”
On a side note, Theatre Alberta is pleased to bring Kevin to instruct a 2.5 day workshop on Directing (July 4 – 6) at Dramaworks 2014. An amazing instructor, we are excited to provide an opportunity for artists from across Alberta to learn from him. Click here for the workshop description and to register.
Character Development in Calgary
Also at Morpheus Theatre, veteren performer David LeReaney will be instructing a Character Development workshop on May 24th. This workshop is for actors and directors of all levels. It will explore the different methods, tools, and ideas that can be accessed when building a character for stage or screen.
