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 Wellington for the next Rehearsal & Performance workshop with director Chris Dudman.
Chris Dudman’s career has involved writing and directing short films, commercials, feature and series documentary and series TV drama. He directed short film successes The Graffiti of Mr Tupaia and Choice Night, and later co-wrote and directed Harry, the gritty crime drama series starring Oscar Kightley and Sam Neill. He wrote and directed The Day that Changed My Life, the multi-award winning documentary about Christchurch’s devastating earthquake, and directed two standalone episodes of James Patterson’s true crime anthology series Murder is Forever. He’s currently writing an adaptation of Archibald Baxter’s memoir We Will Not Cease. Chris was also a longtime partner of and director at Auckland TV commercials company Robber’s Dog.
Selected directors and actors will be expected to do some script prep beforehand. DEGNZ will provide the scene at least one week in advance.
When: Sun 25 August, 9am – 2pm
