Text Analysis and the Decoding of a Script Workshop
As an actor, understanding the intention behind a script is vital. The TEXT ANALYSIS AND THE DECODING OF A SCRIPT WORKSHOP led by actor, director, playwright, and theater educator Seng Soo Ming will give you the tools to dissect scripts and dialogue and translate that knowledge into your performance on stage or screen.
Don’t wait, register now.
Actors don’t simply learn the lines, they have to conquer it and discover their own acting on top of it.
Script analysis is a very important tool for actors to learn WHAT the script is about, WHY is it written and WHAT is required to be done (actions); followed by discovering HOW to do it, examining the ‘hidden’ structure and rhythm behind the script. So, before the director starts to direct, the actors shall know already the options of creativity on stage or on screen.
This workshop aims to introduce a practical method of text analysis, to help actors discover the dramaturgy and actions behind the written dialogue.
*Workshop conducted in Mandarin

OLD LEAR by KL Shakespeare PlayersVenue: Blackbox, DPAC Date / Time: 11 June 2022 (Sat) ~ 8.30pm : Normal MYR 68.00, Concession MYR 53.00 12 June 2022 (Sun) ~ 3.00pm : Normal MYR 68.00, Concession MYR 53.00OLD LEAR
presented by KL Shakespeare Players
'Old Lear' clings to Shakespeare’s framework of a retiring monarch whose flawed judgment and hasty words spiral his family into tragedy. A parallel is seen in another family: Gloucester’s. The actions of these old patriarchs precipitate the turmoil & tumult and the schemes & subterfuge, which are echoed in nature’s indifferent but frightful storms. Calm and good weather return and order is eventually restored when, at the moment of epiphany, these old patriarchs declare: “I am a foolish, fond old man,” adding, “You must bear with me:/ Pray you now, forget and forgive: I am old and foolish.”
