OH MY GOD TWO POSTS IN ONE EVENING?! You lucky bastards! This is definitely not a sign of procrastination.
This is my fourth year applying and this year I feel the most happy with my choices of schools and how that translates into what I love and what I want to do. I really enjoy contemporary theatre, I love it and that is what I want to do. It took me a while to understand as I had it in my head that to be a good actor you had to do classical theatre and be all fancy but fuck it. I don’t care if people think I am a bad actor for making the kind of theatre I want to, or think all I do is fuck about and make weird stuff. That is what I want to do and that is what I want to train in so I can make it exceptionally well.
On that note, I have decided to audition for contemporary or devised theatre courses this year and I am only auditioning for 5 schools in total. I am auditioning for Centrals Collaborative and Devised course, East 15s Contemporary Theatre course (maybe their Physical Theatre one too), Rose Brufords European Theatre Arts Course, Fourth Monkeys Two Year Rep and Royal Scottish Contemporary Performance Practice. I will do an in depth look at the application process for each of these courses later on and of course a detailed review of the days themselves. I have auditioned at Central before and they audition you for all three courses so I know a little about that audition process. I have auditioned at Rose Bruford and Royal Scottish before but not for these courses so I am excited to see the differences in their process.
This is all dependent on getting my personal statement finished in time so I should probably get back on that. Toodles!xx
