Philosophy

“I believe teaching acting is sacred, joyous, soul work. Actors bring their tender, vulnerable hearts to the process, so it’s imperative the classroom is a place of safety, love and respect. I also believe there’s something to be learnt from every acting approach. My own teaching and acting is influenced by my training with Ivana Chubbuck, Larry Moss, Eric Morris, Rowena Balos and Elizabeth Kemp, among many others, and in the Meisner, Strasberg and Laban methods. An actor may find their connection to a character through using their own real life memories, a what if, or pure imagination. They can access it through the body, the voice or even the breath. It all can work. I like to help actors expand their toolbox with practical effective tools, ones I’ve created and ones that I’ve inherited, all the while reminding them that working on a role can be a delicious and profound journey of discovering more about oneself and our amazing world. I like to instil in actors that our most cherished dreams are indeed possible, when we get into alignment with our true self that loves and accepts us, and when we have the self-discipline to do the necessary ongoing work to develop and grow our craft to its highest potential.” – Anthony
