Beyond the benefits of improvisational and presentational skills scenic role-play can also enhance self-understanding.

Aside from exploring basic principles movement and speech this class focuses as well on imagination and social skills.

The following subjects will be introduced:

  • posture and gesture
  • speed and effort
  • movement paths and locations onstage
  • voice and enunciation
  • emphasis and phrasing
  • interpretation (character and behavior)
  • role-play (action and reaction)
  • style (text analysis)

  • Willingness to prepare and practice in between classes: reading plays, memorizing lines, practicing elements of speech and movement. Approximate time required: ca. 30 minutes per day
  • Participation in all of the classes. The work sessions build on one another. We will also be working on scenes (dialogues), so if one person is absent the scene partner can’t rehearse either.
  • Fluency in English


Registration is open until January 13, 2021.


Due to the ongoing pandemic all our classes are currently held online through Zoom. We decide on a monthly basis on how to move forward.
