  • “My experience at YTC was enlightening and it challenged me to do more and give more. My take home is: 1. The Actor prepares. 2. Always stay in the attempt. And commit 100%. 3. Be truthful in every performance. 4. Try out different tactics for any given performance. 5. Take care of my body and voice. I appreciate the opportunity to have been a part of this programme, and to be associated to Yenze. I hope to be invited back in future, and to be considered for any future projects at YTC.

  • "It's a blessing for me to have found my self in the YTC space. My take home was... Do not act, just be."

  • “Learning at YTC was excellent! It was a living experience. Two topics that were a challenge for me were Archetypal gestures and the Meisner technique. I found both difficult at first and really challenging physically and mentally. The challenge made them a highlight for me. I have learned to be present. To commit 100% to whatever one is doing. All the techniques we were being taught were to aid us in making strong choices/decisions in our practice as an actor. With the knowledge learned one can know exactly what one is doing with each line, with each character etc.  I learned to be willing to work as a team because the arts are collaborative in nature. You either work with people, or not at all and finally to be flexible and allow oneself to be moved by direction and one's scene partner.”

  • “Yenze Theatre Conservatoire has been and will continue to be life-changing. The techniques of Stanislavski, Meisner, Chekov and Uta Hagen stood out for me in showing me the actor's process and how it should be. Tactics and other elements of movement like the psychological gestures, psycho-physical acting and more recently archetypal gestures stood out too because I struggle with body expression and these have eased the interpretation in acting for me. I learnt that my voice is a very key instrument in telling other people's stories and as such requires my attention and I realized that acting isn't necessarily performance but it is doing and being. Based on these musings my biggest take home is that I have been equipped and freed to tell not just my story but other people's stories too.”
