Natalie is a New Zealand Registered Secondary School Drama Teacher and has had five and a half years teaching and directing drama inside schools and out. Combined with her experience as a professional actress, vaudevillian, MC and producer in New Zealand, this will be one workshop you won't want to miss.

In this three hour intensive, you will learn the following though various different exercises:

- Space - personal, general, levels
- Seven levels of tension
- The basics of improvisation
- Characterization
- Melodramatic techniques
- Principals of the Stanislavsky method of acting (physical & emotional memory, the magic "if", etc...)

This workshop is fabulous for anyone regardless of experience. So long as you have an open mind and are eager to participate, there's a space for you!

What you will need to bring/wear:

See the feedback from some of the participants in the first course:

"The drama technique and characterization workshop with Natalie Hugill is excellent. It taught me how to expand my character and convey emotion performance. Natalie's approach made it very comfortable to ease into the workshop. With a group of people with varying skill levels. Natalie found the right balance to teach, evolve and strengthen the skill of the individual group members. I highly recommend this workshop for any performer looking to expand their skills."

Nicholas Nash - Performing Artist
"I highly recommend the character and technique workshop, so much fun and learnt some simple but very effective techniques to get into character."

Yvette Young - Performing Artist
