Opportunity / Drama
Who is it for?
Anyone who would like to create characters and take part in one of Upmo’s performance showcases.
Acting… and how it can be used to explore social situations, and develop communication and self-confidence. Students are helped to create their own warm-ups, scenes and performances. Scenes are then developed to a stage where they can be performed in front of an audience at one of our regular events. It’s a safe, welcoming place for new people to join at their own pace, and suggest new scenes and stories.
What will you learn?
Situations relevant to everyday life – allow your imagination to create any scene. Throughout a 12-week block, students are encouraged to bring ideas to the workshop and develop characters that are both familiar and out of the ordinary.
