Every aspiring actor needs a monologue or two: memorised, polished and richly performed that can be guaranteed to display your abilities to your best advantage. These are a mainstay for most audition opportunities
This class is intended for any and all performers who aspire to professional standards and it is to those standards we will adhere. It is recommended that you come to the first meeting having already picked a short monologue (2-3 minutes TOPS) from either the classical (Shakespeare is always a good place to start) or Contemporary repertoire. We will meet as a group every other week over the course of two months during which time each candidate will also receive an hour of one-on-one coaching.
Fee: €100Concession: €80 for students
As part of WE ARE HURTLING INTO THE FUTURE exhibition, Joanna Kidney will teach a class in encaustic painting on Friday 13th January from 11am to 4pm in Galway Arts Centre.Encaustic painting is an ancient, immediate and tactile painting process using molten pigmented beeswax. The workshop will take an experimental approach to exploring the qualities of encaustic painting (texture, transparency/opacity, incising and impressing, building up/breaking down layers). Joanna most recently taught this technique to Fine Art students during a residency at Brigham Young University, Utah. Each participant of the workshop will create an encaustic painting. People can sign up online on www.galwayartscentre.ie The cost is €45 which includes all materials.
