London Theatre passport for international actors run by LegalAliens 

 

 

Lara Parmiani a well know Italian actress based in London and working both in the UK and in Italy together with Becka McFadden who's an American director based in London since 2008 will run the course.

 

 

 

Lara set up a company, LegalAliens, with the aim of bringing more European theatre in translation to London. They have been quite successful with their shows, and have also forged collaborations with universities and colleges. In particular, since there are now so many foreign actors in London, they have been asked by the City Lit to run a three day workshop in July aimed at international actors, focusing on how the theatre/TV/film world works here, how to "sell" themselves, how to approach agents, write a CV, which skills to concentrate on etc.
