Examining Character: Playing villains with Nora McLeese - Thursday, 29. August - 14:00 - 17:00h


About the Workshop:


Playing villains: The default archetype of a villain is well-known. It is that of crooked postures and cackling laughs. However, we should be careful that they do not become so one-dimensional, that they no longer serve the show. This workshop will explore how we can create villains that are more dynamic, with histories, motivations and layers – without neglecting the fun!
