Present Performance

Tutor: Kate Maravan

Venue: The Old Diorama Arts Centre (map)

Date(s): 20 June

Times: 13:00 - 16:00

All too often we fall back into ‘acting habits’, allowing the head to be in control and feeling disconnected from the material we are working with.

Kate’s classes will focus on ‘Present Performance’ using Sanford Meisner’s key exercise:  Repetition.  Encouraging a moment-to-moment capacity to listen, Kate helps you observe and respond spontaneously with an emphasis on staying rooted in the present.

Movement is also an integral part of the sessions. The more embodied the actor, the easier it is to be present and to enter a state of flow in which spontaneous impulse and responsivity in the moment are unencumbered.

"Kate is a gifted teacher of great sensitivity and depth. Always attentive to the needs of each individual student, she embodies the responsive presence that she teaches.” – Lizzie Crarer, Actor

Kate is an actor, writer, theatre maker and teacher. She trained at RADA and works in Theatre, Television and Film.  She has written scripts for theatre and television and teaches at ArtsEd, The National Opera Studio, Generation Arts, Rutgers at the Globe and at her own practice.
