Acting and Performance

An actor’s work is interpretative and creative. An actor’s tools are his/her voice and body, the hands, feet, face, energy, emotional range and not least, his/her capacity for human understanding.

The influence of our patron, Peter Brook, introduces a simplicity and directness that is often not discovered by actors until they have had considerable professional experience.

In addition Cygnet uses an eclectic mix of approaches, including the work of Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov, Sanford Meisner & Brian Astbury’s Emotional Release / Under-Reading.
