for Professional Performers – both new to the style and experienced players welcome
9 to 13 July

This utterly unique, dynamic training – starting point of much of the company’s celebrated repertoire, like Dublin By Lamplight and Man of Valour – will awaken your creativity and stretch your acting skills to the hilt. 

Annie Ryan, through The Corn Exchange, has been honing the technique for over 20 years into a much celebrated and valued practice in Dublin. Within a nurturing environment, this work cultivates high expertise in character work, physical embodiment, creation of character image, make-up masks and acting.  

An invaluable tool for performers, the workshops encourage fully embodied play with great bravery, compassion and rigour.  

 “This technique creates amazing space for play; where the actor is invited to work in a world with endless possibilities and vast imagination while maintaining deep focus and clarity. It is rare that one learns so much while workshopping with a company and I have found their fundamental principles applicable to all of my subsequent endeavours as a performer.” Louise White, theatre-maker and performer
