Rehearsal & Performance Series

A regular, hands-on programme of moderated workshops, each with a highly experienced New Zealand director, actor or actor/director.

This initiative is intended to provide both directors and actors with an opportunity to practise their craft, improve director-actor communication, forge new networks and take creative risks without consequence. Participants explore a provided scene in groups (one director, two actors) with expert assistance on hand in a safe and non-pressured environment.

Suitable for film school graduates (or equivalent) to mid-career directors.

Spots are limited to four directors and eight actors per workshop. There will be eight sessions in 2020, held in Auckland and Wellington, with another exciting line-up of tutors.

The Rehearsal & Performance series is hosted by Directors & Editors Guild of NZ with the support of Equity New Zealand and funding from the NZ Film Commission.
