From ‘The Wider Earth’ to the acting studio

March 21, 2018 Whats On No Comments Email Email

Fresh from the successful return season of Dead Puppet Society and Queensland Theatre’s The Wider Earth for the 2018 Sydney Festival, accomplished Brisbane actor, producer and teaching artist Thomas Larkin is warmly welcomed back to the studio, to facilitate NIDA Open acting courses.

Thomas is one of many NIDA tutors in Brisbane sharing their talent with creative people of all ages, who want to experience the benefit of our world-renowned training methods, while exploring their artistic potential.

‘Many of our students discover a new-found confidence in these classes which they then bring to their work as they develop their acting techniques. Soon after, they begin to experience the widespread application of these skills across a broad range of contexts within both their personal and professional lives’ said Thomas.

‘We also introduce students to networks which they can access and with who they can collaborate on projects beyond the course. I aim to provide participants with not only the technique and craft, but also a taste of just some of the practical business tools necessary to support the individual to pursue a career in acting’.

The workshops focus on physical theatre, ensemble-based work and script analysis, as well as introducing these business, communication and corporate aspects which will enhance an actor’s future success in the industry. Thomas believes that at the core of his success with students in the NIDA Open classes is his commitment to ‘adapting to the individual aspirations and abilities of each member of the group while nurturing the ensemble, to create a goal-driven, rich experience for every participant’.

Holiday, term-time classes and adult courses are held in Brisbane at TAFE Brisbane, Queensland Academies Creative Industries Campus (QACI) and Chapel Hill Uniting Church. All times listed here:
