(Rajesh Gopie)

Respected actor, playwright, director, producer and qualified acting teacher, Rajesh Gopie, will be running a series of three mid-year courses geared particularly for those wishing to learn about professional acting course for film and TV as part of his ActorWize programme – a foundation phase course for new recruits; an intermediate phase for those who have attended his basic ActorWize Course already, and a vac youth programme for high school learners.

Created by Rajesh Gopie, the course is called the Professional Acting Course for Film and TV. It will be taking place at Durban High School campus, in Durban’s Berea.

Gopie ran his inaugural Durban course in January, to a capacity group of enthusiastic budding film and TV actors. It was so popular, and received such great feedback, that Gopie is running the small group bespoke course again. He will also be running a follow-up course going into more detail and teaching more advanced acting skills geared particularly (although not exclusively) to those who attended his first course.

Making use of the July vacs, Gopie is also running a course for high school learners: ideally for those between 11 and 16 years old who want to learn about developing acting techniques for camera. He will give a modified version of his Professional Acting Course for Film and TV geared specially for younger performers. He will be taking this for the first ten days of the July school holiday

Classes run from June 12 to July 7, 2017.
