Echo Acting will provide professional acting training for adults at the Connacht Hotel, starting in September. Created by the award winning Eva’s Echo Theatre Company, Echo Acting offers an informative and insightful view into the world of acting.
During the eight week course, programme facilitator Rena Bryson will guide participants through the world of acting with a fun, educational, and passionate approach. The programme is suitable for those completely new to acting or those who want to brush up their skills.
Each class uses different acting exercises to build skills including confidence, spatial awareness, projection, text analysis, physical theatre, and improvisation. Each participant will develop a monologue which will be performed for the group at the final class. This monologue can then be used for self tapes, auditions, etc. Each participant will also be presented with a certificate of completion at the final class.
Rena Bryson has more than 10 year’s experience teaching drama and holds an MA in drama and theatre studies. She began her work as a drama teacher for children and adults with special needs and welcomes students of all abilities. You can choose to attend on Tuesdays or Thursdays. Both classes run from 7pm to 9pm.
Echo Acting Galway also offers one-to-one classes to assist actors with developing their skills, preparing for auditions, or completing an individualised programme suited to the actor's needs. One-to-one sessions can take place in person or online.
