Train With Us
Red Grit, Red Ladder’s free actor training course, is a popular training course that shares the Red Ladder approach to actor training, from character to relationships to ensemble and participants range from professional actors to total beginners. Participants will be introduced to neutrality, the voice and movement training.
A typical Red Grit course will run for 8 evening sessions on Monday and Tuesday evenings over four weeks. The aim is participants attend both sessions each week because the course is designed chronologically and to miss sessions means the sequence of learning is lost. The course starts with the actor’s body and then moves into character and voice. Then we look at stage relationships and finally sessions on ensemble. The course is unique in that it is based very much on physical work and the artisan-ship of acting – we do not work on improvisation or working from scripts – as there are plenty of actor training sessions across the north which offer this. Influences on the teaching include: Jacques Lecoq, Laban, John Wright, Phillippe Gaulier, Simon Edwards, Marian Masoliver, Mike Shepherd, (Kneehigh) Emma Rice, (Kneehigh) and a range of other practitioners with whom Rod has worked over the decades.
