Acting is fun, exhilarating, heart soaring and electrifying – but only if it’s truthfully connected, alive and moment to moment. Immersive theatre also requires specific skills – stamina, playfulness and bravery. You need to be able to engage with an unpredictable audience standing a foot away, pull them into a different world and hold them there, and touch their hearts by being authentically connected with them, as the story unfolds around you. All of this you will explore in this unique course. The Gonsalves Method will give you everything you need to do this reliably and consistently across all kinds of immersive productions. Come and be at the start of the revolution – theatre that makes everybody feel something real.
