Rose Bruford College Launches Online Masterclasses

London’s Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance has launched a range of online summer masterclasses and workshops run by internationally renowned practitioners including; Catherine Fitzmaurice (Fitzmaurice Voicework), Michele Shay (Acting August Wilson), Forrest McClendon (Character Driven Dramaturgy for Storytellers) and Wendell Beavers (The Somatic Performer and Six Viewpoints).

Due to the current climate, caused by Covid-19, masterclasses initially scheduled to run on the College’s London campus have been adapted to run online.

Head of School of Performance Niamh Dowling explained;

“Our summer courses attract students and tutors from around the world. With the ongoing restrictions to social distancing and travel, we wanted to make sure our students still had access to the world class training, so we decided to move the courses off-campus and online.”

The move has also allowed specialists, who weren’t initially available to teach in the UK due to other commitments, to join the summer faculty of master tutors for the College, whose alumni include Gary Oldman, Sam Palladio and Lake Bell.

Niamh Dowling continues;

“With space and schedule clashes no longer being a barrier, we have been able to add courses to our original offer and are delighted that tutors of the calibre of Catherine, Michele and Forrest are all now part of our summer faculty.”  

Other masterclasses and workshops include; Karen Kohlhaas (Practical Aesthetics Acting Technique), Irina Brown (Directing), Kathryn Gately and Richard Poole (Meisner Acting Technique), Lisa Dalton and Janice Orlandi (Chekhov, Character and Period Style).

Rose Bruford College online masterclasses will be run on Zoom from the 29 June until the end of July 2020. Early bird booking is available until 15 June 2020.
