Living Pictures Acting Studios 2017
The Living Pictures studios are starting up again and will consist of 11 sessions over four months. They will led by Robbie Bowman with some classes also being led by Elen Bowman.
These studios are a chance to learn, to try out, to question and to put into practice.
We focus on three practitioners, Stanislavski, Meisner and Michael Chekhov and coupled with that will be bringing in NLP and the latest in Neuroscience that Robbie has been researching as part of his Arts Council of Wales - Creative Wales Award 2016.
At Living Pictures, we don’t believe in there being just one way to create theatre, to make art, to be free as a performer. There are, however, some very useful tools that can be gleaned from each practitioner and we see this as a way to develop your tool kit and deepen your awareness of self and others.
Each session will consist of specific games that have applications to being an actor, acting exercises and scene/monologue work.
February : 12th, 26th
March: 12th, 19th, 26th
April: 7th, 11th,23rd
May: 7th, 14th, 21st.
Times: 4pm-7pm
Where: WMC (Cardiff)
£150 for people new to the studios for all 11 sessions
£100 for returning Studio Members
I feel it's vital to continue training and developing as a working actor. The Living Pictures actor's studio enables you to explore new approaches and consolidate your work with a progressive environment in which you can truly challenge yourself. Equally valuable is the opportunity to discuss and practically address performance difficulties. I cannot recommend highly enough the knowledge, experience and confidence this actor's studio can offer.

Meisner Mondays:
These sessions are drop in and by donation only. If you can’t afford a donation, come along anyway. Only stipulation is that you have had some experience of Meisner repetition exercises before joining. This is a good opportunity for those taking part in the Acting Studio to practice their Mesiner repetition exercises.
The basic Meisner repetition exercises will be explored each session with other Meisner exercises being added to the evenings work. It will be a chance to get your understanding and practical application of Meisner’s work to a deeper level and a chance to exercise your creativity.
Robbie and Adam Karrie have been using Meisner repetition exercises to develop a piece of new called Say When. You will be shown how easy it is to use these exercises to create work.
The sessions were originally set up for a group of interested people to practice and lead it themselves. This is still the case, but on the nights of the (13th of Feb), (13th, 20th, 27th of March), (3rd, 24th of April) and (1st, 8th, 22nd of May), Robbie will be leading the sessions. He will also be introducing work from Nick Moseley’s book Meisner in Practice.
Meisner Mondays take place every Monday at WMC (Cardiff) from 7-10pm. We ask that people let us know if they’re coming to a session as far in advance as possible.
For more information and to book your place on the Acting Studio please email Robbie or Adam on:

Kyle Legall is directing RATS (Rose Against The System) which will be taking place during the second week of April 2017 at the WMC. This is a tale about the everyday struggle of a family of rats looking for food in the ever-changing urban environment that is modern Butetown. On the hunt for food the RATS stumble upon a secret society that has plans to blow up Cardiff Bay.

We are looking for four performers of any gender and any ethnicity and are particularly interested in finding people with poetic, singing, mask, Kung Fu and/or dancing abilities to play the RATS. You will need to be available between 27th March and 9th April. 

A knowledge of Hip-Hop culture is desirable but not essential.

Fee is £100 per day.

This project is funded by Arts Council of Wales.

As part of our production of The Mountaintop @ The Other Room we are looking to programme two Speak Easy Events on 8th and 15th October. 

What is a Speak Easy Event? 

Fio want to bring people together in a conversation about race, equality and poverty in 2016. Looking at the themes of The Mountaintop. Asking what has changed since the death of Martin Luther King?

We will be working with Black History Month Wales, Stand Upto Racism and other organisations to programme two event days including speeches, discussions, music, poetry and more. 

We are looking for people who are interested, inspired and motivated by issues around racism, poverty and equality.

CASTING CALL: 3 Male and 3 Female actors.
Big Loop Theatre Company presents an exciting and challenging opportunity to be involved in the staging of the classic Vaclav Havel play, 'The Memorandum'.
This performance will be a profit share production between the 6 actors and the rest of the creative team.
All 6 of the actors will be required to multi-role certain characters listed below. Actors should have a playing age between 18-40.
Open auditions will take place on Friday 29th (10:00-12:30) and Saturday 30th (09:00-11:30) July 2016. Please confirm your attendance TO ONE OF THESE DATES by emailing with your name, contact number, email address and preferred audition date.
'The Memorandum', or 'The Memo' is a fast-paced absurdist comedy based around the goings on in a nondescript company's offices.

The auditions will be group auditions and will consist of a short workshop based around being playful, collaborative improvisation and delivery of text. Please bring comfortable clothes (not jeans). Please prepare a 2-5 minute monologue/poem to perform on the day.
All actors will be required to rehearse at least once a week throughout August. These rehearsals will likely be in the evenings, on various days, dependent upon availability given during the audition process. There will be two performances of The Memo on the evenings of Thursday 8th & Friday 9th September (not yet confirmed). All actors will be required for an intensive rehearsal week on Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th, Wednesday 7th September.
If you’re interested in being challenged and are a fan of the collaborative process; please come along to auditions, it will be great to meet you all!

PLEASE NOTE: In the interest of full disclosure, one of the two performances will be used as an assessment for the director, George Soave’s Final Major Project in his MA Drama course at USW, Atrium. Big Loop Theatre Company is excited to be working in Cardiff and thank USW profusely for their help during this process.

The Memo will be an open book production in that any member of the cast/crew/general public can see where and how the money has been spent.

Big announcement...

Today we are launching Kiln 3! Applications for writing are now open at: so start getting busy.

Building from the incredible success of Kiln 1 and 2, Kiln 3 is being run as a free R&D project for local writers. Have you had a budding idea in the back of your mind and need the impetus to do it? Are you 9 tenths of the way there and need that extra push to get it on it's feet? Then Kiln is for you. Submit your ideas in as complete a format as you have them before the end of the month and we'll consider them to be part of Kiln 3, with 3 pieces being chosen.

Your piece will be worked on by a dedicated director and a cast of talented actors, and performed in front of a live audience on the first weekend of October, November and December, all for free. What better way to get your ideas out there, so get your pens at the ready and start submitting.

Welcome to Kiln 3 - It's gonna be huge.

Hi friends! For the past few months I've been working with WNO on an innovative modern opera all about student activism. This is the biggest project I've ever worked on, and I highly recommend it.

Tickets for under 30s are just £5, plus there are free open rehearsals. Details below, or let me know if you have any questions.
