A 6-week course in Practical Aesthetics to help you find your truth as an actor 

Here at Brave Studios we have developed the ADVANCED ACTORS WORKSHOP to provide professional actors and Advanced graduate Actors an acting course that will challenge them on a weekly basis to keep their skills active and fresh. This course is designed for the working actor wanting to refresh their skills and be pushed by a working actor. Actors will be working with many diverse and challenging scenes always working towards the core and truth of the scene and character.

Practical Aesthetics – the method devised by Tony winning Playwright David Mamet and Oscar & Golden Globe Nominated Actor William H Macy- is taught to great acclaim out of the Atlantic Theatre Acting School in New York. Damian brings his experience with this method to the Advanced Actors Workshop, freeing actors to be spontaneous, grounded and free within their work.

This is an advanced program for the experienced actor to meet with blocks or limitations, who is determined to overcome and gain a deeper knowledge into themselves and their craft. By participating in the Advanced Actors Workshop, actors are given the platform and skills to let go and trust themselves to dive even further into their truth.

If you are an actor needing to be challenged further to move forward in your work, this is the perfect acting course for you.
