Practical Aesthetics

In-Person

Online

Practical Aesthetics (PA) is a practical approach to acting, developed by the director and playwright David Mamet and actor William H Macy. It was developed as an antidote to the confusing, inaccessible and shame-inducing acting approaches, often promoted in mainstream actor training.  It draws from the later writings of Stanislavsky, the works of Sanford Meisner, Joseph Campbell, Aristotle, William James, Carl Jung and philosophy of stoicism.

Scene Study (July)

Mindful acting classes

In-Person

Online

Working as a group, students will explore the experience of acting through the lens of mindfulness and humanistic psychology to help break through personal barriers and blocks. It will examine the often-overlooked questions of what to do when we perform and how to integrate our acting into our life and our life into our acting, so that we can get the most out of both.

Testimonials

"I would go so far as to say that 'Scene Study' is absolutely necessary training for the professional actor. Dan uses his seemingly limitless knowledge and insight into practitioner theory, plays and the craft of acting to guide actors through a very personalised journey of discovery."

Nancy Monaghan

"If you are thinking about doing Scene Study stop thinking about it and just do it!!! Daniel's knowledge and passion for scripts and techniques is incredible and infectious. I would urge any actor, experienced or not, to do this course."

Up to now I have had 3 one to one sessions with Dan and they have been amazing. I have always had a love for acting but at 62 I felt I had really missed the boat. Dan's sympathetic and encouraging training is building my confidence in so many ways. I am learning to memorise scripts and to delve into the characters and am even learning alot about myself. Dan is an expert in bringing the best out of people and he has filled me with a new found confidence in my acting ability. One of the best decisions I've made in a long time is to join Mindful Acting classes.

Having recently completed Dan’s 4-week Film Scene Study course, I have absolutely no hesitation in offering a heartfelt recommendation to actors of all levels of experience. I signed up keen to sharpen my technique following the pandemic, and to reflect on my preparation and approach to acting for the camera. Within a lovely group of just 6, Dan created a warm, safe room in which to challenge me individually, and tailored his tutoring for each participant based on their specific needs and goals. I finished the course with renewed confidence in and clarity around my craft, thanks to Dan’s approach and great expertise. A wonderful four weeks!

The film scene study class was a good stepping stone from scene study which is what I’d previously done with Dan. Learned so much more in terms of what I needed to bring to the scene in order to lift the text of the page.

Being taught my Dan in scene study class was really wonderful, he puts his heart and soul into teaching and noticing all that’s going on in class and the scenes and it shows. He teaches with passion and knows how to get the most out of the actors. Really looking forward to doing more classes with Dan this year, as he like to work closely with the actors individual needs whatever level you may be in your career.

Dan is an excellent communicator, a keen listener and holds the ability to analyse language, intention and behaviour in order to structure sessions in such a way as to generate an environment in which you can build upon whatever it is you feel would be beneficial. In my case, the combination of theatre and mindfulness is starting to lead to a very valuable set of discussions which I already feel are allowing me to be more self-reflexive and aware. In short, Dan is a fantastic life coach, mentor and advisor regarding all matters both on and off stage. I would very much recommend him; regardless of your current acting experience, situational posture or overall goals. I look forward to continuing the journey with Dan and Mindful Acting.
