Kevin Jackson Technique – Ongoing
An eight week series – the next step in the Kevin Jackson Creative Habit Technique.
This eight-week series is designed exclusively for actors who have completed the Kevin Jackson Technique course and wish to gain more detailed insight into Kevin’s technique. Kevin will delve deeper into script analysis, character development techniques and detailed grammatical work, changing your professional mindset and lifting your focus, forcing you to be the best artist you can be. The course will begin with a focus on Chekhov in order to benefit from the Chekhov/Stanislavsky relationship, which is they keystone of all approaches to acting for the Western Canon. The focus will then shift to focus on a classic contemporary play. Each week, twelve students partner up and rehearse in their own time, and present the scenes and homework to the group for re-direction and analysis.
Over the eight weeks each participant will work on various scenes for the group, being directed by Kevin, looking at the following areas:
- Linear Work – punctuation, grammar & use of language
- Deep Text analysis
- Character work & analysis
- Use of physical space to inform character & story
Development & practice of craft lie at the core of the Masterclass:
- Stronger ability to understand the complexity of classic plays and confidently approach the text.
- Exercise and development of acting ‘muscle’.
- Greater awareness of writers and plays in the cannon
- Understanding and implementation of the Creative Habit.
- Ability to greater analyse, punctuation, beats, & rhythms of text
- Increased awareness and spirit around the true artistry of acting.
