THE THEATRE director, playwright, and teacher Max Hafler will give two intensive actors’ masterclasses and workshops in Galway Arts Centre in February and March.
Playing For Real is an intermediate acting workshop that will explore the idea of playing for truth in naturalistic drama, through scenes in Chekhov’s Three Sisters. This 10 session course begins on February 8 and will run for five weeks on Mondays and Tuesday from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. The cost is €160/140.
Imagining The Play takes place on March 13 and 14 is aimed at those interested in developing their acting skills. It will explore character, use unconventional techniques, exercises by Michael Chekhov, and seek to explore the imagination.
Exercises will be focused around Bertolt Brecht’s Caucasian Chalk Circle and participants are asked to source a copy of the translation by WH Auden and James and Tania Stern, and bring it with them. The course cost is €60.
Spaces on both courses are limited. To apply send a CV (if you have not worked with Mr Hafler before ) to the Galway Arts Centre or email [email protected] (if you have worked with him ).
