20 - 22 SEPTEMBER 2019 | LONDON, UK
A PHYSICAL LAB FESTIVAL WORKSHOP WITH YORGOS KARAMALEGOS
PREPARING FOR A LAB
For our short courses, we ask everyone to prepare and learn a piece of text. This can be a monologue, or if you know some of your fellow participants, you are welcome to pair up and work on a scene (though this has to be arranged in advance). We encourage our participants to work in whatever language is most comfortable to them.
We recommend preparing a maximum of one page of script though as little as 10-20 lines is enough to work from. We always say it's better to feel secure with a short text than spend three days distracted and worrying about your lines.
You are welcome to choose your own text, but the downloads below offer a selection of suggested scenes that we feel are well suited to our work, taken from previous lab productions and residencies.
Although physical lab is primarily dedicated to acting training, please bear in mind that we work from the body and our classes include movement exercises so wear suitable clothing.
It's also helpful to come prepared with a notebook and water.
Other than that, all we ask is that our participants arrive with willing, open minds and bodies.
