Have you always wondered how actors are able to get into the skin of the characters they portray? How are they always so confident even with so many pairs of eyes watching them?
The answer is simple – training. Modern day actor-training is based largely on ‘The System’ by Konstantin Stanislavski, Russian theatre practitioner, emphasising on the actor’s work on their physical instrument to his emotion memory to deliver truth of the passions, feelings that seem true in the supposed circumstances. Actor training is not only for actors – everyone can benefit from it to remove the barriers which inhibits us from freely expressing ourselves and feeling at home on stage with an audience.

Embark on a journey of self-discovery with Associate Librarian, Sheila Jang, as we explore books on acting including An Actor Prepares by Stanislavski and learn from Robert Lewis’ Advice to Players in an interactive acting workshop. The workshop will consist of a series of acting exercises where you will learn the fundamentals of acting.

Limited to 20 persons per session. Participants to come in comfortable clothing suitable for movement (no shorts and skirts).

For particpants aged 18 & above only.
