This is a chance to explore (in person) the techniques of Sanford Meisner as taught by Scott Williams which means you’ll be approaching acting from a repeatable, practical perspective.  Whether you’re in a long run, working with a director who wants many takes, or you’ve only got a few chances to hit the mark as an actor, this approach gives you a way of “living truthfully” the first time and every time.  Come experience this technique as taught all over the world by Scott Williams of The Impulse Company. Please note: this is a full day in person lecture/demonstration being held at Dancehouse in Melbourne. It will not be livestreamed or be available as a podcast.
