An 8 week course to help you find your truth as an actor
This course is designed as an actors workout that actors can re-visit again and again to keep skills fresh and the actor challenged.
As actors, finding the truth of a performance can be the most elusive and frustrating part of our job. There is no right or wrong way – just your way, but it’s not always so easy to access.
So much of acting is to do with trust. Trusting ourselves, trusting each other. Brave studios will encourage you to do just that. By letting go and trusting, you are forging a path to your truth.
Here at Brave Studios we have developed the ACTORS WORKSOP to provide actors with the tools and environment to access their truth in a safe and nurturing environment.
This is not a beginner’s course, but a program for the actor who is starting to meet with blocks or limitations, who is determined to overcome and gain a deeper knowledge into themselves and their craft. Learning how to connect to other performers in a scene can sometimes be challenging and confronting. By participating in this course actors are given the platform and skills to let go and trust themselves as well as the other actor.
This workshop is taught in two blocks, one by the incomparable acting coach Lyndelle Green and the other half by the acclaimed actress Daniela Farinacci.
With over 20 years experience in the industry, Lyndelle’s knowledge of various techniques and personal experience is highly beneficial to any student striving to learn the craft of acting. Lyndelle brings with her a wealth of practical and analytical knowledge and a deep understanding of text. Her passion and care for actors is well known and garners great results.
Daniela is a wonderful actress with over 25 years experience in the industry. She has has most recently featured in the main ensemble cast of the multi award winning ABC television series GLITCH directed by Emma Freeman and ABC telemovie REDFERN NOW – PROMISE ME. She brings with her a wealth of experience in the field and has had wonderful feedback as a teacher.
We have seen so many breakthroughs in this class. It has been inspirational to witness those brave enough to push through to the other side.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR TEACHERS
~ Have been meaning to write to you to tell you how amazing she was. Such a beautiful, caring, nurturing, intuitive teacher. She never once used her role as the teacher to gain power or dominate us, it was a really safe, collaborative space to learn together. Couldn’t recommend her more. She’s definitely one of my favourite teachers that I’ve trained with in my 25 years of classes. Have definitely picked up some news skills from her while polishing up on the ones I already had. Also really enjoyed her little bits of meditation at the start of the class and her personal touches to each of us as individuals. Thanks so much for the course! Will be back soon for sure.
