If you are reading this because you are an actor and have been looking for an acting course to study, you’re search is over, because you’ve just struck gold!
The Actors Space in Vic is the place to go! Situated in the beautiful Barcelona countryside, this summer school is run by two exceptionally talented and creative teachers, Marian Masoliver Comella and Simon Edwards. I have studied The Art of Comedy (Clowning) at The Actors Space over the past two years and the workshops are not only run to the highest of excellence but also offers a totally unique and special experience, certainly unparalleled to any course I had ever studied at before.
Over the two weeks of study (although ‘play’ is a more suitable description) I learned about comedy timing, relationships in comedy, the clown mask, clown on film and how the clown lives and survives in everyday life (to name just a few things.)
Marian and Simon show you how to find your clown which is in all of us! And once you find him/her there’s no going back!! The amount of work covered in the two weeks is truly mind
boggling but its one helluva fun ride! Unquestionably, my time there has helped my development as an actor enormously. And not only that but you will also guaranteed to have the time of your life with an amazing group of people, basking in the warm mediterranean sun by day and relaxing with friends long into the night under the balmy night skies. Be warned, you will not want to leave.
Ps. Did I mention that they also have an outdoor swimming pool. I rest my case. Do yourself a great favour and go to The Actors Space. Tell them Martin sent you!
