Sorry folks, we are totally sold out for this workshop. In case you feel interested in joining the next workshop with Séamus, do not hesitate to contact us HERE.


With his unique approach to script analysis, Seamus McNally, New York/Berlin-based acting coach and director, helps actors explore stillness, presence and a highly evolved, effective technique for inhabiting beats and actions.
Ultimately, actors participating in this workshop leave with a solidified and elevated connection to their craft, and a refreshed confidence in their ability to deliver exceptional work on set.

Active Participants explore this effective technique by taking on a carefully selected role, from first read to a fully realised scene on camera. Observers are not just passive onlookers, but are actively engaged in the text analysis, practical exercises and feedback sessions.
