Master It | A Taste of Impulse

“Scott totally changed my concept of what it is to act.”  - Sam Smith
“...the most enlightening week of training I’ve ever had.”  - Marika Aubrey

“Scott’s uncanny ability to help you make subtle adjustments in your work is extraordinary. He helped me elevate my work and reconnect with my love of acting. I’d work with him again in a heartbeat.” - Alyson Standen (Total Control, Home & Away, Farscape)

Scott Williams returns with his exciting series of intensive workshops, rooted in his training with Sanford Meisner and William Ball, to transform everything you thought you knew about acting technique.

This 3-Day Workshop is designed for actors who want an insight into what it means to “live truthfully under a given set of circumstances” within their work. You will explore a specific set of exercises developed by Sanford Meisner and distilled by Scott Williams, all designed to connect you to your emotional truth and ‘live in the moment’.

If you’re looking for a deeply joyful and authentic process that allows you to become fully present in your body and responsive to your partner then this is the workshop for you.

Discover more truth, excitement and power in your acting.

Discover what it means to ACT ON IMPULSE.

These workshops will be taught by internationally renowned teacher, director, and Artistic Director Scott Williams, who studied with Sanford Meisner at the Neighbourhood Playhouse and has over 40 years of experience teaching this work globally.

The cost to observe is $75 per day. Please call 02 6247 1223 to organise.



Scott Williams founded The Impulse Company shortly after his arrival in London in 1996. He previously trained with Sanford Meisner at Neighborhood Playhouse and with William Ball at American Conservatory Theatre, and has advanced degrees from San Francisco State University.

He has directed and taught all over the world, including at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival (Measure for Measure), New York Stage and Film (Painted From Memory), and in Hong Kong (Ancient History and A Streetcar Named Desire). Scott’s Impulse Company has moved into international work, with the creation of Impulse Company Australia (in conjunction with Kate Skinner and Erica Chestnut), as well as regular teaching work in Paris, Istanbul, and New York.

Scott's distilled, joyous, and passionate approach to actor training will leave you inspired and transformed. He is one of the remaining few with the direct Meisner lineage and offers a unique perspective to deepen and broaden the skills of today's actor.
