• 9 July and the beginning of August, we will deliver written and oral submissions to support the Bills that protect the earning rights of actors. If we fail, we will never see meaningful industry transformation in our lifetime. Included will be our petition of OVER 2000 signatures. Make sure it includes YOURS!

  • ALL Actors! We need your voices to be heard.

    We need the world to see and hear that our industry supports transformation. That our industry supports FAIR compensation that INCLUDES actor royalties.

    We need you to record a video message and put it on your online presence! Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. We need all our voices out there under one banner so that when SAGA delivers this message to Parliament, it is a message from all of us.

The quieter Winter Season in the Cape is the perfect time for the actor to sharpen their skills. Many actors underestimate the amount of focused work that needs to be done to really get on top of a dialect/accent. This month's workshop will be lead by the renowned Vicki Bawcombe who not only is an actress, writer and educator- she is a sought after dialect and accent coach whose credits include Orpheus in AfricaWest Side Story and was the resident dialect coach on Black Sails .

How to Do Just About Any Accent  is an introduction to the principle of designing an accent or dialect for your character, and then sustaining that design. We'll look at the moving parts involved in creating a set of sounds, and the way the dominant posture influences the rhythm and modulation of the dialect/accent. We'll have some fun applying these ideas to a few accents. The workshop is intended to "break the ice" - it's a starter-kit to help actors to feel freer to explore and develop their accent repertoire. – Vicki Bawcombe
