The first 2,5 days of this Masterclass you will be working with Giles on a film monologue with a character you will prepare.
Giles Foreman works with the YAT & LABAN Technique of Character transformation and you will dive into the vast work of this complex and highly efficient character building tool. No script will be read on a superficial level again: you will experience the depth and multiple choices of any character.
Starting on the mid of day 3, IRIS will join to give you generous information about your presentation as an actor as well as for your essence, so you can position yourself even better in the film industry.
IRIS will also introduce the concept of the ABOUT ME videos, a wonderful and personal form to present yourself to the casting directors, no matter how much or little film material is on your showreel. It gives the director or casting team a spirit of your essence, sparkle of your passion and hence more ideas to think about you than only in terms of the audition scene´s character.
Those of you who do not have a recent ABOUT ME Video, will be shooting their ABOUT ME-Video. Those of you who already have this presentation of themselves, Iris will direct you with a "songologue", which is fun and useful to have as well.
You will be taking home your video material for enriching your presentation in different casting search engines such as spotlight, filmmakers or castforward.

Spend 12 days with Giles Foreman during xMas and NYE with other international actors exploring the intense work of Laban and Malmgren. Also Iris Baumüller will join us to help you in your positioning in the European film industry.
The setting is a beautiful countryside cottage where everyone will be accommodated. We will cook and also celebrate together, shuttle vans will get us out of the area to explore Mallorca; but our priority is that each actor will be receiving tremendous amount of insights, inspiration and technique.
The Laban-Malmgren System of Movement Psychology and Character Analysis is based on the psychological theories of Carl Jung (Sensing, Thinking, Intuiting and Feeling).
Laban was the architect of European Contemporary Dance who essentially conducted an extraordinary comprehensive analysis of human expression
Yat Malmgren recognised that this would prove to be a powerful tool for the actor and went on to complete Laban’s theory. He extended Laban’s ideas by creating a psychological typology which brings together Laban and Stanislavsky. Inner motivation and outer expression leading to the detailed and accurate construction of character.
The technique is familiar to all the students of Yat including Sean Connery, Anthony Hopkins, Colin Firth, Helen McRory, Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender, Simon Callow and all the many accomplished artists taught over the course of 50 years work.
Having further developed the teaching in collaboration with Christopher Fettes and others during the last seven years, Giles Foreman is now a leading contemporary exponent in the UK and across Europe.
The workshop involve the progressive unfolding of the constituent parts of the technique, followed by opportunities to embody what has been covered through practical exploration and in acting exercises.
