Juju's Presents: ACT
Actor- Chorus- Text Training
Juju's proudly presents the ACT training program, in collaboration with Moon Fool Theatre Company.
The ACT training workshops, developed and run by Moon Fool founder and Director Anna-Helena McLean, provide actors with drop in sessions, regular training, and the opportunity to engage in intensive workshops and residencies before participating in in-house productions at Juju's.
This approach to theatre effectively combines the native folkloric, esoteric, classical and contemporary in a comprehensive, accessible and mind-blowing way.
'Company' ethos is encouraged in participants, with trust, mutuality, and a sense of communality emerging through collective practice.
The method: ACT is a learned method of interweaving music, movement, poetry, and story in any given spatial location. The training exercises in musicality and physicality incorporate:
Gardzienice Company methodology
Acrobatic partner and counterbalance techniques
The art of gesture with hand, body and chorus
Polyphonic singing of indigenous folk and gypsy music from across the Globe, as well as original composition
Dynamic speech work with physically charged interpretation
The ACT ensemble is currently developing a performance for this year's East London Fringe Festival. More details to be announced soon.
