ACTING COURSES FOR ADULTS
THEATRE WORKSHOP FOR ADULTS
18 years and above
We offer three ten-week courses each year. One course starts in September ending around middle of December. Our second course runs starting in January with final performances towards the end of May and the beginning of June.
Each course is made up of a series of intensive workshops led by our professional Acting coaches. They mix physicality, voice, renowned techniques, theatrical exercises & games, classical and original texts to create dynamic theatre.
The workshops take a concentrated, in depth look at approaching texts and characters. The actors work on their vocal skills, improvisation and the impact that their own physicality brings to the stage. The course explores the talents that each individual has as an actor and theatre maker.

The group is never bigger than 16 students with one teacher. This makes each three hours workshop extremely intensive and productive. Outside of class the students are encouraged to meet independently to work on their scenes, study and learn texts and explore writing their own material.
The course builds to a performance for an invited audience on the last evening. The performances attract an ever-growing public and have become an annual get together for the French and English Communities in Hong Kong.
We mainly teach in French. However we often have additional classes held in English.
