Actors learn from various sources, but only the most resonant lessons come together to become the foundation of an actor’s oeuvre. The Foundation Skills for Acting workshop series is specially curated to build the basic core of an actor’s craft. The ultimate aim is to build a strong base that can be adapted to any context, performance or stage by getting participants to work with voice, body and imagination in the safe space of a workshop.

This September, we bring you an FSA that focuses on Story & the Character.
