About the course

Advanced Monologue Performance is designed to enhance actors’ skills in one of the most critical yet neglected areas: the monologue. Whether it’s a short piece to impress in the audition room, or a standalone performance in its own right, every actor should have a strong monologue in their repertoire for when they want to showcase their talents to the right people.

Advanced Monologue Performance covers the following areas and more:

·         Understanding what makes a great monologue performance

·         Analysing text: depth of understanding and mining a script for opportunities

·         Performance techniques

·         Rhythm, cadence and timing

·         How to find, know, understand and become a character

·         Giving and assimilating feedback

·         How to find and select a suitable monologue

·         The basics of writing and directing monologues and how this is relevant to a performer
