MasterIt is The Street's ongoing program of masterclasses for Canberra theatre makers. Watch this space for upcoming classes in 2019!



A four-week course for professional actors who want to open up extra dimensions to their craft.

“The language of the body is the key that can unlock the soul” Constantin Stanislavski

What do I do with my hands? Can you develop ‘stage presence’? How do I act when I’m not ‘feeling it’? Much of the work of the great theatre practitioners of the 20th century coalesced around the core principle that the direct line to our emotions, our imagination, and our creativity is through the body.

Over the course of four 4-hour sessions, Christopher Samuel Carroll will explore physical techniques aimed at freeing the actor’s body, tapping into intuitive impulses, awakening the imagination, and crafting embodied performances based on a through-line of physical action.

The workshops will draw from the methodologies of Jacques Lecoq, Jerzy Grotowski and the pioneering work on physical actions from the later oeuvre of Constantin Stanislavski. There is no level of physical fitness required, but participants should be willing to challenge themselves at the level of their individual capacities (and not be shy to break a sweat!).
