Take The Leap

Take The Leap

Empower yourself to step into the fullness of your potential. Take The Leap is a thrilling workshop that will feature DeObia delivering an intense 2 day masterclass, taking you on a journey through your blocks, doubts and fears. 

In Take The Leap, DeObia will lead you to break the Fourth Wall on your reality. The Fourth Wall is 'theatre speak' for the divide between the fictional and the real world. Take The Leap is about being unreal in the expectations you have set for yourself and in your potential to meet those expectations in the work we will cover.  

Take The Leap is built on the principle that life isn't a dress rehearsal and that the only time is NOW. We will create work and we will perform it to a ready made audience in parks, a town square, a coffee shop, on the steps of the Royal Festival Hall. You will live every beat of these two days as the creative artist that you imagine yourself to be. This is a workshop for the bold, courageous and those willing to feel the fear and Take The Leap.

Take The Leap will also be an opportunity for DeObia to source new talent for his upcoming short film project, Sunday Fantastic.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

In Take The Leap you will learn to:

  • Break out of the confines of the studio
  • Leave behind theory
  • Practice to create on-the-spot theatre for street audiences and three-minute-performance-sketches which will be shot on location and directly uploaded to your social media. 

MATERIALS

Workshop materials will be emailed out to you in advance. Please come off book for the monologue, soliloquy or scene that you choose.

SEE DEOBIA IN ACTION

G I A N T S, a short film, was cast with aspiring actors from DeObia's Performance, Truth and Power workshop. 

Take The Leap will provide similar opportunities to get your face, voice and talent out there. 

ABOUT DEOBIA OPAREI

From fractured beginnings that included childhood poverty and homelessness, DeObia's unconventional path to Hollywood success is a stark lesson in making a way out of no way. 

Having decided against going to drama school his sheer force of will, talent and character led him into the hallowed halls of The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Royal National Theatre, and the Royal Court Theatre - where he honed his technique and refined his craft. Leading him to work alongside the industry's most successful movie stars, Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge), Johnny Depp (Pirates Of The Caribbean), The Rock (DOOM), Ryan Gosling (The Gray Man). 

“You become a filmmaker by making films; you become an actor by making theatre. You learn by doing. This is practice over theory. Rehearsing and performing, not lecturing.”

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
