The Actors art is the art of action!Mike Alfreds

Mike Alfreds is a course advisor at ICAT. He is an award winning, internationally renowned director who has been named one of the best directors in Britain by Sir Ian McKellen and Mark Rylance. He tutors and coaches actors worldwide including a number of Hollywood’s elite.
His freedom enhancing approach to the craft as detailed in his book Different Every Night, is introduced by Simon in this hugely energised, practical and inspiring weekend course. This will change your approach to acting in the most wonderful way.
Mikes renowned book and Simon as Trinculo in the RSC's groundbreaking production of The Tempest.
Simon, who has worked with Mike extensively, is an award winning Royal Shakespeare Company actor with 17 years experience in high profile theatre, radio, film and television www.simontrinderactor.com. His trademark teaching style balances energy with clarity earning him the name 'The Bolton Bullet' by a recent participant. He creates an environment where ideas are kept simple but effective and there is an invitation for all to fail safely.
The course, which always has restricted numbers to allow participants time to explore, regularly score's 10 out of 10 on numeric feedback and Simon is repeatedly invited back to teach these skills at prominent actor training establishments. Some recent written feedback:
" I want to do my whole career over again knowing what I know now!"
"10 out of 10. This technique is what I've been missing. It's taken the myth out of acting!"
"I feel my toolkit, brain and gut bulging with new ideas"
