Spotlight Open House: Managing Stress and Mental Health
How can I be better prepared for auditions? Will I remember all those lines? How do I manage periods of unemployment? How do I control my nerves? This workshop, run by Dr Jane Oakland, explores some of the more common stress-related issues experienced by actors and ways in which an actor can learn to take proactive steps towards enhancing confidence and general wellbeing. In addition to the topics outlined above, participants are invited to submit their own questions prior to the workshop (anonymously three days prior to [email protected]) in order to tailor the content to the specific needs of those taking part. Discussion and practical application will form part of this workshop.
