This scene study workshop is for anyone from a novice who wonders what acting is like to an actor wanting to brush up on their skills. Through traditional theatre training practices including, breath, movement and voice work actors are pushed beyond their perceived limits and encouraged to immerse themselves in a strong technique and respect of craft that will support them in all facets of their career.

This highly dynamic and energized class will develop confidence in acting, a comfort with expression and support for anyone curious about taking their work to another level. Students will be given scenes and scene partners, learn basic text analysis and character development through innovative exercises and improvisation.

Edward Foy is a multidisciplinary artist who works in Film and TV (Arrow, The Killing, Once Upon a Time, Zoo) Animation and Voice Overs (Super Monsters, Company of Heroes), Theatre (Beauty and the Beast, Merchant of Venice, MacBeth) and full performance capture (Assassin's Creed, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Splinter Cell). He believes the actors commitment to training is part of a lifelong pursuit of excellence in the work - for actors are athletes - requiring a strong mind, body and heart.
