“We want to encourage a world of creators, of inventors, of contributors, because this world that we live in, this interactive world, is ours." Ayah Bdeir, Engineer & Creative Thinker
We set up Firecracker, a theatre group for young people, because we wanted to play our part in encouraging creators through productions and masterclasses.
Master Classes AUTUMN 2016
This autumn Hydrocracker is offering 3 new Master Classes.
ALL MASTER CLASSES ARE AT BRIGHTON DOME
16th October, 2016, 10.30 – 4.30
HOW TO MASTER AN ACCENT
Mary Howland is a leading freelance accent and dialect coach, who teaches at a number of top British Drama schools. She has an MA from the Central School of Speech and Drama in Voice Studies. She coaches privately, and has worked on a number of film and BBC productions.
The opening part of the accent workshop is learning how to listen when faced with an accent challenge. What habits can you listen out for - intonation, pronunciation, and physicality. The second half of the workshop will look at how these apply to a so-called 'General American' accent, and then how to move from that to a regional US accent.
Scripts will be provided.
13th November, 2016, 10.30–4.30
Jonathan is an actor and fight choreographer. His fight credits include fights for Manchester Royal Exchange, Theatre Clwyd, Salisbury Playhouse, The National Theatre, The Wolsey Theatre Ipswich and the Stafford Shakespear festival. He also teaches stage-combat at various drama schools including Lamda and Guildhall. For the past few years he has sat as one of the judges at Lamda’s highly competitive ‘Fight-Night’.
The workshop will share the secrets of stage combat technique – partner awareness, distance, timing and intention- and will end up with a mass group brawl!
