Our next Rehearsal Room workshop is coming up in Christchurch on Saturday 9 May, from 10am until 2pm.
This workshop beings together professional actors and directors in a safe, supportive environment to practice working with each other on scenes.
You can register on our event page to have your name in the draw to participate. 4 directors and 8 actors will be selected. There will be an experienced moderator guiding each event.
Directors must be DEGNZ members, while actors must be Actors’ Equity members.
Who is The Rehearsal Room for?
Professional actors and directors. It is open to members of all levels of experience; from novices to virtuosos.
Directors will be asked to provide a two-character scene (2 pages) or, if you prefer, a scene will be provided for you.
Structure of the event
Directors and actors will spend time rehearsing their scenes, with emphasis on connection and content.
After morning tea, participants will block their scenes, before presenting them for shooting, followed by viewing and discussion.
The Rehearsal Room is hosted by Directors & Editors Guild of New Zealand and the Equity Foundation, with financial support from New Zealand Film Commission.
