From Within … a FEST Acting Workshop with Kevin Oakes…the power of theatre comes from within and not from ‘effect acting’.

It’s not enough to just tell the story – you have to believe in what you are doing; and to do that you have to believe in yourself and give of yourself. Only then does the audience have the opportunity to believe in the power of theatre and what it communicates.
Theatre is a very personal form of communication, and should definitely remain so or lose its ‘soul’.
Your body language is as much a part of the story of theatre as the dialogue is – you can say so much without uttering a word!
Yes, it comes from within.

This workshop will use story-telling, role-play and other approaches to help explore acting ‘From Within’. You are also asked to accept the challenge of preparing a favourite monologue, which will be used during the workshop.*

* Preparing a short monologue is not compulsory, but would be an added bonus for the Workshop!
