Portraying Realistic Relationships in Performance

COURSE OVERVIEW

AN ONLINE ACTING COURSE ON HOW TO PORTRAY REALISTIC RELATIONSHIPS ON SCREEN AND STAGE

Stories are always about people in relationships.

Werther they involve real human beings, inanimate objects or ideas, characters in film and theatre are either motivated or hindered by people and things they have some kind of relationship with.

Skilled actors are able to ’embody’ relationships convincingly and genuinely. Their interactions with their co-stars are richly layered and nuanced – much like our relationships are in real life. ‘What’, they do and ‘how’, they do things with each other reveals specificity in the relationships they are depicting. This specificity is so important in performance that sometimes it may be a major reason why a particular actor is chosen for a certain part. 

As an audience member you may have experienced how powerful relationships work is. You many have found yourself walking away from a performance, saying that the lead actors had ‘chemistry’ with each other – or, that they did not.

Despite how key relationships work is, actors are rarely taught how to do it exclusively. As a result, actors feel uncertain about how to properly ‘get into’ or embody a particular relationship.

This course has been designed for exactly this purpose!

 

TRAINING ESPECIALLY TO DO RELATIONSHIP WORK

Part theory, part practice, the course will introduce you to practical tools you can use right now to elevate your auditions and acting performances.

The first part of the course focuses on equipping you with tools you need to recognise relationships in script work. The second part of the course is purely practical. Through a set of exercises you’ll learn how to embody different relationships convincingly. Or said differently, how to be truthfully ‘in them’ during your performance.
