Moderator

Robyn Malcolm is one of New Zealand television’s best-loved actors. An accomplished stage performer before moving into screen roles, she is best known for her iconic role as Outrageous Fortune matriarch Cheryl West. Other television credits include leading roles on Serial Killers and Agent Anna, and a supporting part on Jane Campion’s acclaimed mini-series Top of the Lake. Robyn has appeared in films (The Hopes and Dreams of Gazza Snell), documentaries (Our Lost War) and is increasingly involved in projects across the ditch, including three seasons of ABC comedy Upper Middle Bogan.


Who is The Rehearsal Room for?

Professional actors and directors. It is open to Actors Equity and DEGNZ members of all levels of experience, from novices to virtuosos.

Material

Directors will be asked to provide a two-character scene (2 pages) or, if you prefer, a scene will be provided for you. Directors and actors will receive scripts in advance.

Structure of the event

Directors and actors will spend time rehearsing their scenes, with emphasis on connection and content.

After morning tea, participants will block their scenes, before presenting them for shooting, followed by viewing and discussion. The shooting is a wide shot only, intended as a means to review performance, not for directors to direct camera.

The Rehearsal Room is hosted by Directors & Editors Guild of New Zealand and the Equity Foundation, with financial support from New Zealand Film Commission.
