Melbourne Intensive Performance Block 1 will focus on the Stanislavsky technique (also known as “the method”. It will be run by Michele Williams and Chris Connelly. Michele is a classically trained actor who studied the Stanislavsky technique UNCSA- one of The USA’s premier acting schools. This full time training included being mentored by a Russian master teacher, whose abundance of work included an extended period with The State Stanislavsky Theatre Company in Moscow. Chris has an innate professional knowledge of the technique that has been consumed over his 30 plus years as a working theatre actor with many leading theatre companies.

There will be a performance, however, unlike our public performances that we have run in the Melbourne Comedy Festival and The Fringe Festival, this performance will be a “work in progress” and open to invited friends and family, as opposed to being marketed to a public audience.

This will enable us to focus more on the actual technique, as opposed to having all of the focus on the performance.

There is then the option (but no obligation) to continue on to the Melbourne Fringe Festival Performance Course (Block 2) and students attending both courses will be given a reduction in the fee of the second course.
