The above course of ten workshops are aimed at beginners and those wanting to sharpen their acting skills. Throughout the ten weeks we will work together covering:
> Creating a character; and
> Contemporary text work
Previous students were kind enough to write their thoughts on our work together:
“Natasha is a creative wonder-woman with no limits. She loves what she does and her passion is contagious. Under her guidance and direction I tapped into parts of myself tucked so far down and created work I will forever be proud of. A short film we made as a class under Natasha’s direction has got me auditions where I have walked into the room and it has been the first thing the Director has wanted to talk to me about.
It is hard to express fully in words how I feel about knowing Natasha and to have had her as a teacher. There is no-one else like her. I recommend Natasha without hesitation. It is impossible to come into her presence and be uninspired.”
Ayesha Casely-Hayford, Actress and Voice over Artist
“I’ve trained under a lot of drama teachers, but Natasha stands out as the best, for her passion and her desire to make you the best actor you can be. Her widespread knowledge and understanding of the craft, including her writing and directing abilities, gives her teaching a different dimension. It transformed my acting ability in a very short space of time. In my opinion, if you want to become a top actor Natasha Langridge is the person to guide you.”
Andrew Frith Actor and Film-maker
“During the theatre course I took with Natasha she guided me through improvisation and worked with text in a way that allowed me to break boundaries and reach new destinations both in the understanding of text and characters, reason and consequence, as well as finding my own interpretations and intention behind the actions I chose to execute. As a dancer and choreographer, this helped my work both in direct and indirect ways. I came to question and therefore understand more about the choices I make and the reasons behind those choices.
I found Natasha’s warm personality, drive and passion for theatre and text essential to my own personal journey, and contagious in a way that every session seemed too short. She was generous with her knowledge and experience and therefore created an open environment where I felt comfortable experimenting and finding new ways and unvisited destinations to explore. I am thankful to have had this experience and opportunity with Natasha.”
