“When the actor reaches for the hand of a writer, the world is affected. We know these actors when we see them.” – Larry Moss
Likewise, when a great acting teacher reaches for the hand of a gifted actor, the actor’s life is changed forever.
This is Larry Moss. One of the most celebrated acting teachers of all time.
Since Larry Moss first came to Australia 8 years ago, the careers of hundreds of Australian actors have been transformed, leaving their artistic footprint on the world stage.
Larry Moss is wholehearted in his unwavering commitment for actors to serve the play. He inspires them to rise to the occasion through solid technique. When an actor invests 100% of their talent creating characters through story, they make a meaningful contribution to the world.
Larry has been fortunate in his life to work with some of the finest artists in the theatre and film and ‘they have taught me and continue to teach me that art is about choice’ – Larry Moss
About the Masterclasses
In this 4-day intensive “Scene Study” Masterclass you will be assigned a scene, which you will rehearse thoroughly with your scene partner, prior to the commencement of the class. You will invest in appropriate costume and dialect.
As an actor, you will work on the greatest plays of the past and present with Larry Moss- an elder with a lineage and legacy – and experience what is possible when you yourself reach for the hand of the writer supported by a true master of craft.
Your talent is revealed through the choices you make. What choices are you making?
Over the past 8 years, Larry has selected work from the most wonderful writers – past and present:
William Shakespeare, Noel Coward, Neil Simon, Caryl Churchill, David Rabe, Theresa Rebeck, John Patrick Shanley, Mark St Germain, Penelope Skinner, Martin McDonagh, David Auburn, Clifford Odets, Terrence McNally, David Mamet, Michael Weller, Tom Stoppard, Arthur Miller, Duncan Macmillan, August Strindberg, Eugene O’Neill and many more.
This is a tradition Larry Moss continues with our actors in 2020.
Larry’s breadth of experience as a teacher and director is second to none and actors under his tutelage develop richness in their work, deepening their approach to the craft. This Masterclass will ensure a dynamic experience for participants and auditors alike.
Auditing is not simply an act of watching performers work with Larry, but rather an active process in which fellow actors thoroughly experience and learn Larry’s approach to working through observation and analysis.
We encourage all auditors to read Larry’s book, The Intent to Live, prior to the Masterclass in order to have a solid understanding of the process and enhance their overall learning experience.
