TAPAC

This practical and engaging programme explores voice work, singing, movement, devising and theatre play. Led by screen and stage actor Acacia O’Connor, you’ll gain an essential toolbox of acting skills to prepare you for a career as an actor.

Term 1 explores vocal techniques including singing, accent and voice quality. You’ll learn how to act through singing, practise singing in ensemble and experiment with accents and cartoon voices, filming scene work and recording a cartoon-style voice reel.

Term 2 focuses on movement, exploring how our bodies can tell a story. You’ll explore mime, physical theatre, Laban and psychological gestures as you create skits using different movement frameworks.

Term 3 will involve devising a 5-10 minute solo piece that brings together the voice, movement and story-telling techniques learnt in terms 1 and 2.

Term 4 is all about play, through drama games, theatre sports and re-capping the voice, movement and devising techniques you’ve learnt. Students will have the opportunity to explore their particular interests this term.
