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 three sessions in the first half of 2021, so keep an eye on this page for tutor announcements.

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.
