The Workshop

LAMDA examinations in Acting use the preparation and performance of dramatic scenes to support the development of self-confidence and communication skills. By portraying other characters, actors can explore a range of different personalities and emotions. The development of a clear speaking voice and good body language are also an integral part of the exam. As part of this course actors will have the opportunity to take a solo, duo or combined examinations in Dubai with an external examiner from the UK. These examinations will be available in entry grade to grade 8.

Constellation is also offering the brand new LAMDA Shakespeare qualification – so students can also choose to focus solely on Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. This is a separate qualification from LAMDA Acting.

What is LAMDA?

LAMDA, one of the world’s oldest acting schools, based in London has been offering practical examinations in communication and performance subjects for over 150 years. Almost 90,000 candidates took LAMDA examinations in over 30 countries last year, making LAMDA the largest internationally recognised drama awarding body.

Through examinations LAMDA empowers and inspires individuals across the globe – providing them with a means to improve acting and communication skills, increase self-confidence and develop strong social skills, regardless of their experience or ability.

The Workshop

These workshops will give any actor a thorough beginners understanding of the renowned Meisner Technique. The technique was developed by American practitioner Sanford Meisner, who created and developed it from the teachings of Stanislavski.

Venetia will teach you to access and develop the art of truly listening, absorbing and reacting as an actor – in the moment, organically and under imaginary circumstances. Using simple and practical exercises you’ll explore the Meisner Technique taking you from the start of the process all the way through to working with text
Stripping the actor of self-judgment, and silencing your inner critical voice that can often lead to over thinking and block character development.
This technique will free you as an actor AND a human being.

Venetia will help you discover why Jack Nicholson, Anthony Hopkins, Dianne Keaton, Robert Duvall, Kathy Bates and thousands of other actors choose to use and follow this technique.

This course is suitable for all levels of actors be it your first time or if you have been in the industry for many years.
Having used the Meisner Technique herself for many years Venetia looks forward to imparting her knowledge of this great practitioner to further develop aspiring actors’ skills and knowledge
