ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

Sheila Donio workshop

Building the Character: Acting on the Playback Stage


Building the character -Act

How do we prepare ourselves to build a character with no time to study their background or gestures? How do we express our character’s emotions as deeply as they ask for, right on the spot after listening to a story? This workshop will allow you to dive into the ART that a "good Playback" performance requires. We will share our stories, play together, and focus our work on the character development for Playback scenes and some short forms. Basic Playback Theatre training required.

ABOUT THE TRAINER:
Shelia Donio

Sheila Donio is a professional actress and theater director from Brazil, with over 20 years of experience. A playbacker since 2004, Sheila was part of one of the very few full time professional PT companies in the world and founded a couple other companies later on. She is a graduate and the current President of the Board of Directors of the Centre for Playback Theatre and runs Playback workshops and supervision for Playback companies in Brazil and abroad.
