Directing Actors - Advanced Masterclass
Designed to extend the skills and practice of directors, this one day masterclass with acclaimed drama director Di Drew will begin with a focus on working with professional directors, followed by the opportunity for participants to work with the actors under Di's guidance.
Enrolment in the course is dependent on experience and/or previous training (this include attendance at the Introductory workshop on the 7th July). Please indicate your experience on the enrolment form. A small number of actors or directors without experience will be able to attend as observers at the masterclass (and have access to a Q&A session with Di.)
