In this one day masterclass, (taught in English) all participants will have an opportunity to practise their skills in self-taping, which is a crucial part of the international casting process. Actors will choose from a selection of scenes and self-tape themselves in advance. Nancy will give feedback in class for all scenes. This will be followed by special exercises which Nancy has developed to hone strategies for auditioning, including cold reading techniques, and identifying choices and objectives on a new text.
