An acting course for adults is coming to Dubai’s Cinema Akil

Thespian, drama queen, performer, star?

If those words ring true to you and you’ve been told that you have a “natural flair” for drama, then why not finesse those abilities with an intensive acting course for adults?

The classes will be held every Saturday throughout October from 11am until 11pm at Alserkal Avenue’s Cinema Akil and the month-long course comes in at Dhs1,200.

Taught by Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi theatre instructor Sol Abiad, the course will cover various different acting techniques such as improvisation, physical expression, and character and scene analysis.

Whether you’re just a beginner looking to get into the acting world or a more seasoned actor who just wants to refresh their skills, the course has been designed for all levels and includes theatre games, acting exercises and brief discussions.

The teaching is based on selected university-level material that has been adapted for a wider public and applies a variety of methods used by leading theatre directors and theorists including Augusto Boal, Jacques Lecoq, Jerzy Grotowski, Konstantin Stanislavski and Viola Spolin.
