The Factory Acting studio is a studio that focuses on sensitising and opening the actor’s instrument, thereby freeing the actor’s individual and unique talent. All our teachers are professional working actors and their experience and training allows the actors to express themselves in the deepest and most personal way in a variety of roles both in class and in performance. Our students experience an intense training, consisting of deep and detailed personal work on what we call the actor’s instrument.
The Actors have the opportunity to develop their craft not only in their classes through scene study, but through a variety of exercises and differing techniques. This helps the actor develop their own process and to discover what techniques they resonate with. Our teachers are trained in the following techniques Strasberg, Stellar Adler, Stanislavsky, Susan Batson, Uta Hagen and Eric Morris and have worked with some of the worlds greatest acting coaches. Ivana Chubbuck, Larry Moss, Cicely Berry, Ellen Burstyn, Carl Ford, Laura Gardner and Margie Haber.
