About the event

Juicy half-day acting workshop on the morning of April 22nd. at a gem studio space in the heart of the city

Suitable for beginners, professional actors, performers, directors, creatives, learners, those looking for an interactive creative session to explore your authentic self and have fun and confidence!

Key words: simplicity, authenticity, empathy and being affected

Just £‎30 for a whole 2.5-hour workshop with a top-level acting coach

Expect to explore and learn a range of acting techniques to expose and reveal one’s authentic self. In a fully supported group environment, you will:

  • Identify default behaviours and learn ways to adapt & alter them
  • Connect with others through setting free your strengths & vulnerabilities
  • Learn physical and vocal means of expression to communicate the full spectrum of emotions
  • Apply Actions & Objectives to activate behaviours or text, to “do things” with words

A session where you will learn and bond with co-creators in the room. Take away these techniques and tools to also support your improvisation and spontaneous thinking, connect and emphasise with others… in acting or non-acting settings.

1h - self introductions, paired exercises, getting to know each other

0.5h - game on instinct

0.5h - intro to Objectives and Actions concept and exercise

0.5h - practical exercises and improvisation

Katie Morgan trained at East 15 Acting School and Ecole Gaulier, Paris and taught at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Throughout her career she has balanced acting with coaching all levels from Olivier Award winning actors, to complete beginners, as well as applying training to services for corporate clients such as Expedia, Bloomberg, Warner Bros, Investment Banks, Start ups and Law firms. She set up The Actors’ Surgery in 2011, offering bespoke acting classes, with a focus on honesty, simplicity, empathy, imagination, humanity and connection.

A few of the testimonials from Katie's students:

‘She is an incredibly intuitive and supportive teacher and uses excellent techniques to help you find your character in a way that feels natural.’

Phoebe Campbell

‘Katie has created an environment encouraging positive engagement and helped me to love the art of Acting. Being relatively new to Acting, she made it easy for me to work with more experienced actors in the group and have immense fun doing so!’

Taherul Khan

'A marvellous class focusing on improvisation led by an experienced actor/teacher. Great for novices to dip their toe into acting in a kind and welcoming environment and great for experienced actors to flex their acting muscles.'

Liam Woon

‘It’s not just an Acting class, it’s a whole new London experience directed by Katie in such a way that everyone is involved in the creative process. So you learn by having a lot of fun and interacting with the group in an exciting and thought provoking way. And you don’t want it to end, like a good story. It’s unique, thank you.’
