Refine your Process | Strengthen your Technique | Explore your Onscreen Nuance

There's no role too small to bring your absolute all. Love, enthusiasm, chemistry, secrets: every character has a soul, every scene an arc.

As work picks up in Australia, onscreen excellence is paramount to your success as an actor. Our full-day workshop is a creative, professional, friendly and incredibly helpful way to keep the tools of your craft sharp. We cast you in contemporary television and film scripts and before the day give you a way to prepare for your scene so that you get the most out of the workshop. On the day we dive deep into embodying a character, analysing a scene and finding authenticity and connection under pressure. In a self-tape world it has never been more important to own your onscreen technique.

Nail it. Every time.


Unearthing New Talent

The Performance Workshop is offering scholarships to First Nations actors who may struggle to cover the $250 registration cost.

If you would like to apply for funding, please email us at sarah@theperformanceworkshop.com.au with a one-minute video or written reply expressing your interest. Your video can be done on an iPhone – nothing too fancy. We are keen to unearth new talent so don't worry if you don't have much experience.
