Workshop 2 – 24th May
Masterclass: ‘Thought in action’ – Bryn Holding

Words are thoughts in action and it is this central idea that we plan to explore in the masterclass. Guided through the work by Scaffold co-director Bryn Holding, this is a rare opportunity for one on one work with a director and the text. With initial group exploration and then individual speech work on text pre-learned by the actor. This will be an exploration of breath, thought, language and character.
