The Rehearsal & Performance series provides regular opportunities for directors and actors to practise their craft. Each workshop brings in an experienced moderator to guide participants as they explore a workshop scene in groups (one director, two actors) in a safe and non-pressured environment.
Join us in Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington for our next workshops with director Caroline Bell-Booth.
Caroline Bell-Booth started out creating theatre and quickly made a name for herself as a director of vision excelling at complex character projects. Early efforts saw her awarded Wellington Fringe Festival’s “Best Theatre Award”; Metro Magazine’s “Best Play of the Year”; alongside many critically acclaimed shows for Silo Theatre. She then moved into television directing, firstly on Shortland Street. Over the last few years she has shot several blocks of 800 Words and was head-hunted to be a recurring guest director on Home and Away. 2018 saw her successfully complete two episodes of both Westside and crime-drama The Bad Seed. She returned to Westside this year as lead director of season 5. She has joined Channel 7’s ambitious new drama Between Two Worlds from the creative team behind Foxtel’s A Place To Call Home – which is set to be a flagship show of the 2020 Season.
Selected directors and actors will be expected to do some script prep beforehand. DEGNZ will provide the scene at least one week in advance.
