Drama at SEA is a highly interactive exploration of performance and performance styles allowing students to learn and develop into today’s actors. Classes encourage participants to further their skills and confidence through development of the “actor’s tools,” voice, body and mind. Writing for performance is also a big part of our drama course and we have recently established a Young Writer’s group.
For the younger classes, we utilise theatre games and storytelling to bring out skills in characterization, team building, interaction with audience and basic stagecraft and performance techniques. Actors have the opportunity to move into more challenging acting classes as they develop their skills. Senior actors are invited into our Ensemble group providing opportunities for participation in live performance events at SEA and in the broader community.
At different times SEA may run specialised workshops in clowning, puppetry, comedy, story telling and performance making. Physical Theatre skills can be developed at SEA by participating in circus, dance and drama.
For anyone who is interested in creative writing and storytelling, this workshop aims at being a forum for exchange of ideas and inspiration under the guidance of Ben Machowiak. The Young Writers meet every Monday afternoon 5pm – 7pm at the SEA studio. This workshop is free, you only have to become a member.
