Mike Alfreds Different Every Night online course for Directors: Module 1

When: 6th March – 1st May 2021 (weekly on Saturdays) – excluding 3rd April (Easter Saturday)

There are 8 workshop sessions in Module 1

This course is suitable for Directors.

Maximum 20 participants

Module 1 cost: £150

Different Every Night is the culmination of a lifetime of work in the theatre, the most complete rehearsal methodology in print since Stanislavsky, as Mike sets out his rehearsal techniques in this invaluable handbook for actors and directors. It offers a vital master class for actors and directors, full of sound practical advice and guidance, and is packed with techniques for bringing the text to life and keeping it alive - both in rehearsal and performance.

Over the course of four modules, focusing on a single play text, Mike will take directors through his book online.

Participants will be responsible for sourcing a copy of Different Every Night.

Living Pictures will supply an e-copy of the play text that will be used during the modules.

Module 1: will focus on Objectives and pre-play analysis preparation. Mike will not be going through Different Every Night in the order it is written and will adapt teaching sessions accordingly to the group.

Modules 2 – 4 (dates TBC)

These will follow in a similar format over the rest of the year and will cost £150 per module, consisting of 8 sessions per module.

You are not committed to attend all four modules, but it would be most beneficial to giving you the full exploration with Mike leading everyone through Different Every Night. If you choose not to continue onto subsequent modules, your place will be offered to the reserve list.
