An Acting Intensive in Transformation

Jude runs four residential acting courses during the spring and summer months: in March, May, June and September.

We will explore and work on method based scene study, improvisation, mask work and Jude's own physical/emotional work: Emotional Mobility. We also present a short piece at the end of the course.

She takes a maximum of eight students. It's full board plus 5 hours tuition per day, with time to study and relax in between. Delicious food prepared by Brigitte the housekeeper - which is mainly locally sourced. One or two meals out in lively beautiful Blaye ( a world heritage site) 

Jude collaborates regularly with other practitioners including
Pierre Gulondo (yoga)
Richard Link (musical director and pianist)
David Sibley ( actor and expert in classical text)
Amy Alderson (artist)

Ground-breaking artist Jude Alderson's theme for these workshops is transformation. 

This is a chance for the actor to learn from a specialist, who has thousands of touring miles behind her and has developed her own highly original theatre. Jude Alderson has earned her place as an important innovator in European theatre.
