Acting and Creating a Character
The workshop started of with a one hour theory and finished with half an hour improvisation acting on stage for some selected few. The workshop was disappointingly lecture like; there actually was not much interactivity, improvisations, no group work and hardly any practical acting. Everybody noted down on paper the definitions of active and passive imagination, character, purpose, acting, environment and similar. Actor Julian Moore from Sweet Entertainments engaged the brains of the twenty participants and discussed the character of the nurse in Romeo and Juliet more in depth. But his approach to acting training was far from “refreshingly new” as promised in the Fringe programme, and creating a character just another term for in-depth background research.
