Advanced Acting Classes: Actors Lab

What you'll learn

Advance your acting skills with our acting short courses in Sydney!

Sydney Community College is proud to present this acting course in partnership with Darlo Drama.

Actor’s Lab is a renowned course that introduces you to a more truthful and personalised way of connecting to your work as an actor.

Classes begin with studio based exercises aimed at; creating openness and availability, identifying blocks, releasing control, finding and creating energy and opening the senses to a full and rich connection to your work.

Later classes involve an in-depth rehearsal period of a scene. Here you work in detail on; analyzing a script, interpreting punctuation and language, connecting personally to the world of the scene and listening and responding organically, truthfully and simply.

The final weeks of the course involve greater one on one time with your director, as the group is split to allow for detailed personal notes and guidance on your individual process. Your tutor is a dedicated director and acting coach, with extensive experience working with students and professional actors alike.

Actor’s Lab is a must for actors looking to develop rigour and reliability in their process. Actors Lab attracts a broad cross section of experience in its students with scenes and scene partners chosen carefully to ensure your individual development.
