If you are a professional actor, you know: preparation is everything. But what happens if they throw you into cold water at the audition? On set? If they ask you to cold read or improvise? In the USA cold readings are a rather regular way to do auditions, and also in Europe, more and more directors want to see the spontaneously of the moment.
Hence, developing your natural impulses, to get more free despite your own ideas of the scene, to improvise on demand, is a task we actors shall train. Karimah El Giamal, who is a master of cold readings due to the work with Dominik Graf and other major film directors, will train you for 4 days. Giles Foreman will also train you for 4 days: well designed exercises for freeing your impulses and being in the moment will prepare you well for the auditions with Karimah.

ACCOMMODATION & SEMINAR ROOM
We will all live together in or around a gorgeous finca close to Porreres. The finca has a pool, bbq place, huge garden with many fruit trees and it will be summer in Spain! Hot enough to jump into COLD WATERS! Finca only has 16 places, this is why we provided some rooms in a closeby monastery on a hill next door (20 mins by foot) - amazing views, little chapel with a tiny restaurant up there, silence and peace.
Twin room / Monastery: 30€ / night / person
Twin room / Finca: 55€ / night / person
Triple room / Finca: 45€ / night / person
