12th September - 21st November 2020
You have a story inside you.
We will help you tell it.
We all have stories to tell.
Some stories burn us from the inside and we have no choice but to tell them.
Some stories are hidden and need to be found before we even know what they are about.
Whatever your story is we will be excited to be a part of its journey to be told.
Give yourself the gift of this once in a lifetime experience of finding, shaping and telling your story.
What is Solo Makers?
Solo Makers is a 3-months online course that will help you shape the story inside you and perform it.
In a small group and with professional guidance, you will get all the support you need to find and tell your story..
Who is it for?
This course is designed for people with no or very little acting experience.
If you're not sure just email me:
What do you get?
You will be working with a group of brilliant people who will give you feedback, support and accountability.
The power of the group is immense.
It will give you well-needed motivation, support and perspective along the way.
It's great to know that there is a group of people who are waiting to see what you've created.
It gives you that no-excuse motivation to actually create.
More group support
You will also be a part of a secret Facebook group for the Solo Makers group only.
The Facebook group is for you to chat, ask questions, share what you created and get feedback.
This will be a group primarily for members' free use but Tal will pop in and offer feedback and answers once a week.
Even more support
Even though the group meets fortnightly it's encouraged that you meet in between sessions to discuss ideas and share with each other.
It's not mandatory, of course, but happens naturally in every single course we run.
The course will be lead by Tal Jakubowiczova.
Tal is the founder of Theater Gym and the artistic director of Hide and Seek Theatre, a group that specializes in devised ensemble and solo work.
Tal is a professional theatre maker who has worked with hundreds of students and non-actors and will guide you from the level you are at.
She will be there to help you find your story, shape it into a show and rehearse it to be performed.
No experience needed.
More professional guidance
After each session, you will receive videos with specific explanations and support relating to where you are in the process. Feel free to ask for explanations and support with specific issues during this process you have and it might help the entire group!
Since we work on zoom, all our sessions are recorded and you will get access to the recordings to catch up or watch later.
You can even download them and use them whenever you need them in the future.
The group is limited to a max of 4 students
so that you get all the feedback and support you need.
Find your story and how to shape it into a show
Learn acting skills
Get a structure for your individual process
Get performance experience
Have a solo that you can develop into a show in the future.

Time and committment
We will meet on zoom
once every two weeks for three hours.
All on Saturdays 12pm - 3pm, UK time
On these dates:
12th & 26th September 2020
10th & 24th October 2020
7th & 21st November 2020
an online performance at the end of the course
on the 21st November at 6pm
What if you can't do one (or more) of the sessions?
It is best if you can make all of the sessions
but sometimes this is not possible and that's ok.
Everyone works on their own pace and you will just carry on with your journey.
Tal will fill you in and help you to catch up on anything you've missed and you can always ask your friends to fill you in too.
Apart from our official zoom meetings, you will need to work on your own to carry on and create things to show in the next meeting.
I can't tell you how much time you need.
This depends on the piece you're making, the way you work and how much time you've got on your hands.
