Andrea Small’s Singing Workshop 5/17/09 in Ceske Budejovice

Jim from acting class forwarded me this announcement, which I am glad to pass on:

*****

Hello Everyone,

It is my pleasure to once again inform you about Andrea Small’s next
visit to the Czech Republic.

She will lead a workshop under the title “Singing for Joy” on Sunday
17th May in Ceske Budejovice.   As usual it will be held at the Materske
Centrum Maj and will run from 10.30-4.30.   The workshop is open to all adults and
teenagers, even if they believe they cannot sing.   The cost is on a sliding scale from 375kč – 700kč

We are planning a shared lunch so please bring something – not too
much – to put on the table for us all to enjoy.   Tea, coffee, water and
biscuits will be provided throughout the day.

I would be grateful if you could distribute the information about the
workshop as far and wide as possible.  Word of mouth is still the best
recommendation.   Flyers are attached but  if you need printed ones please
let me know.  You can have the flyers either in Czech or English.
You will also be able to find full information on www.expats.cz on the events
calendar.

Booking in advance is necessary so please contact me either on
gilbomber@cbox.cz or send a text to 608233310.

I look forward to hearing from you very soon and perhaps singing with
you in May

With best wishes

Gil

Devised Theatre Workshops with Miloco

Divadlo Miloco will be holding a series of workshops focused on devising original performance material in rehearsal. Highlighting movement, improvisation, clown, rhythm and song, these workshops are designed both to develop individual actors’ skills and explore the creative potential of an ensemble.

Of primary importance will be the creation of a space where the group of performers work as one, yet allow for and strengthen each other’s individuality.

The workshops will combine intense physical work with ensemble movement excersises, designed to break down barriers that inhibit open creativity and expression. In tandem with movement and ensemble work, we will also explore improvisation and clowning techniques as ways to create performance material.

As the workshops progress, we will spend more and more time on storytelling, incorporating the physical and improvisation work into a context where an actual performance material can be created.

These workshops are desinged for both experienced, professional actors as well as students. The workshops will be conducted in English and Czech. While the course is free, we will ask all participants to contribute 50kc/session in order to cover costs of heating, electricity, etc.

The workshops will begin on Thursday the 4th of December at 19:00 and will take place every Thursday until the end of January (there will be a Christmas break)

The workshops will be lead by Daniel Brown and Andrea Miltnerova.

Miloco is currently looking to expand its performance ensemble for productions in 2009.

If you are interested in participating, please call Daniel Brown on +420 773660065 or email: info@miloco.cz

“Unlocking Shakespeare” Workshop, Oct. 25, 26, 28th

Intensive Acting Shakespeare Workshop
Led by Guy Roberts, this is the perfect introduction to acting Shakespeare’s texts for the beginner and the perfect exploration and tune-up for the advanced actor. Shakespeare’s characters express themselves by thought, choosing language moment to moment. This intensive workshop explores the link between the structure of the language and the thought the structure expresses. Once the actor fully understands and commands the tools of Shakespeare’s language the possibilities are limitless. The aim is to empower actors to make Shakespeare’s language roll “trippingly” from their tongues. Participants will workshop a selected Shakespeare speech or scene and the weekend concludes with a Mock Audition experience and individualized instructor feedback on the “audition”.

Details and a daily breakdown below:

Nancy Bishop: Marketing For Actors

Nancy is launching several types of new workshops to expand her “brand” if we can call it that. Marketing for Actors will cover how actors can get themselves out there in the world (through new media: youtube, facebook, search engines, blogging; as well as old: resume and showreel critique). There will be a special focus on “self casting” using the new website for actors to send their castings directly to producers. Presumably the workshop will also cover how casting directors view and use this marketing. Right now it looks like she’s only scheduled classes in the UK. Maybe we can persuede her to bring her class back home!

Andrea Small: Singing Workshop Oct 11 & 12

Gil Bomber is organizing 2 workshops with English a natural voice and Alexander Technique teacher, Andrea Small. The workshops will be October 11th and 12th and space is limited, so you should sign up early. Each workshop costs 750 Kč and you should bring your own lunch (drinks are provided). The workshops are being held at Základní škole, Mohylova 1963, Prague 13, close to Metro Lužiny

On Saturday 11th October there will be a workshop (adults only) from 10.30 to 4.30 called “Singing for the Truly Terrified” which is mainly intended for those who feel they would like some extra help when singing, and for those who truly believe they cannot sing. But it is also suitable for anyone who would like to come along and sing (including those who came to it last year) – we will just be taking it a little more slowly than on Sunday.

On Sunday we will be “Singing for Joy”, also from 10.30 to 4.30, and the workshop is open to all adults – we will be singing different songs from those learned on Saturday so attendance at both workshops is fine.

To sign up or for more information, please contact Gil at gilbomber@cbox.cz phone: 608 233 310. Andrea will be teaching private lessons on Friday 10th October. Please book through Gil.
