Curiouser and Curiouser: the Dramatic Devising of Wonderland
What to expect:
In this acting camp, actors will curate their own original interpretive work of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. From Humpty Dumpty to the Red Queen, from the Mad Hatter to the Jabberwocky, creative devising, ensemble work, and physical and vocal character exploration will all combine to bring the curious characters of Wonderland to life. Young actors will learn a variety of professional acting techniques, vocal and movement work, textual analysis, group games and exercises, audition techniques, and improv.
