The Equity Professional Program

The Equity Foundation hosts more than 100 events a year throughout Australia and New Zealand. The program is developed in close collaboration with performers.

The Equity Foundation's masterclasses are designed to address our members’ need for ongoing professional development and provide rare opportunities to work with leading directors, coaches and casting agents.
Our workshop series is an opportunity to work on specifics, such as acting for the camera, comedy, dancing, voiceovers and accents. Up to 10 members work over a two-hour period with an expert in their field.
In Conversation
As part of the foundation’s In Conversation series, performers are given the opportunity to attend an intimate question and answer session with leading international actors and directors. Sir Ian McKellen, Richard E Grant, Sam Neill, and Cate Blanchett are among those who have participated in the In Conversation events.
Casting Hothouse 
Each year the Equity Foundation hosts a Casting Hothouse, which gives performers a unique opportunity to work with international casting agents, such as CBS TV Studios’ vice president of casting Matt Skrobalak and US feature film casting director Margery Simkin.
Student Days
We know how difficult it can be getting a toehold in the entertainment industry, so each year the Equity Foundation holds an industry day designed to provide graduates with important information and tools to help them on their way to a successful performance career.

Events Program

Movement Workshop With Sara Wiseman

03 Nov 2012
12:30:00 -  02:30:00
There are no tickets available for this event

Event description:

Whether on stage or screen an actor’s body must be relaxed, open, expressive and fully connected to the vocal, emotional and intellectual truth of his or her character. The actor must also have an ability to fulfill a director’s physical instruction quickly, easily and professionally, bring offers to the floor or set regarding outer action and character’s physicality and maintain a healthy strong and released body throughout a long play, season or shoot. This is an opportunity to work with Sara on integrating and surrendering to the imagination and emotions born out of unique physicality and how can it inspire character and freedom of expression in your rehearsal and performance.
