Voice & Movement

These workshops are specifically designed to guide actors to their natural voice and emotional authenticity, away from habitual tension and patterns.

Screen Acting

Screen Acting, Self-taping and Audition technique. The important skills and experience any actor needs to master and regularly keep up to date.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

It was transformational! I think the best thing about the course and about the way Ashlie taught Meisner was the simplicity and effectiveness of focusing on one another’s feelings. While I’ve always had a part of me thinking whether I should provoke or not, act or not, do or not, be one way or another, or otherwise analysing the right way of doing the repetition, with Ashlie I was able to settle down into my acting partner’s feelings as well as my own. It was powerful to just see the other person and let them affect me, to see how they affect me. In the end it all made me learn heaps about not only acting but myself as well. It’s come up in most acting related situations that “why go to therapy when you can go to acting class”, but Ashlie’s course took it to a new level. Hands down, I would give the workshop a 10/10.
