Free Go Solo! Workshop 14th June with David Benson

KW DB TNEOUI am delighted to announce that I am hosting my first Go Solo event, for ten participants only on Saturday 14th June 2-5pm in North London.                 FREE INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP – venue details

The class is intended as a special three-hour introduction to my particular curriculum, part-lecture, part-workshop exploring the many ways of creating and performing solo work.

My aim is to encourage and inspire confidence in anyone wishing to explore their potential, in a supportive and fun atmosphere, for solo performance – whether for professional performance, public speaking or simply boosting self-confidence.

The only criterion for enrolment to one of the ten places available is that you are expected to bring to the class a piece of work or defined idea for performance that would be prepared to discuss and, within the boundaries of a three-hour class, show. Clearly in such a relatively short and intensive class, there will be a limit to how much we can cover, but I hope at least to be able to give all participants a chance to discuss their work in this introductory class.

This is also a chance for me officially to launch my Go Solo masterclass series and take my first class through my specially-devised programme of conversation, exercises and performance with lots of information on technique, style, writing, staging and presentation. It will also be a chance to examine and overcome some of our ‘blocks’, fears and insecurities about performing our own work.

I will of course be drawing on my own experiences from a ten-show solo career, using examples from my work as illustration. But I will be encouraging an active and uninhibited atmosphere of discussion and enquiry.

The workshop is being hosted through the generosity of the Hilldrop Community Centre and is free, though any donations to the Centre would be much appreciated. Like all such publicly-funded community resources it faces closure next year as a result of the brutal government cuts.hilldrop map
