Past Workshops

Larry Moss Masterclass

 

 

“Everything I’m teaching you about acting has one aim only: to fire you up emotionally and behaviorally so you can give a vivid, involving, and memorable performance.” – Larry Moss

For 7 years, Larry Moss has inspired and challenged hundreds of Australian actors in his Masterclasses to be courageous in their craft, to fall in love with writers and creatively pursue the “INTENT TO LIVE”.

Larry Moss teaches with generosity, passion and a fierce commitment to actors, inspiring them to rise to the occasion and instilling solid technique that reveals the very truth of the play.

Each day we will explore the finest of a new generation of playwrights as well as the celebrated plays of the past through Larry’s renowned Advanced Scene Study work.

16th Street is thrilled to welcome one of the world’s most acclaimed acting coaches back to Australia in April 2019 with Masterclasses in Brisbane, once again in association with The Factory, as well as in in Sydney and Melbourne.

Larry has been fortunate in his life to work with some of the finest artists in the theatre and film and ‘they have taught me and continue to teach me that art is about choice’ – Larry Moss

 

The 4-Day Larry Moss Masterclass

In each of the Masterclasses, Larry will work with the actors to break down and explore the relationships to all persons, places, objects and events that the writer gives us; a deep exploration of the world of the text – be that of a play or a musical.

In this process of rehearsal, you will begin to discover choices for your character that ignite the story in the richest possible way.

Larry’s work asks the actor to make the dangerous choice in pursuit of the deepest truth.

CELEBRATED PLAYS: CONTEMPORARY AND CLASSIC

Hilary Swank. Leonardo DiCaprio. Juliette Binoche. Tobey Maguire – all acclaimed and celebrated for their powerful work. All coached by Larry Moss.

In this Advanced Scene Study component, Masterclass actors will discover the joy and freedom that is possible when they are in service of something bigger than themselves – the play.

Learning how to interpret and inhabit a scene illuminates the story and is the basis for Larry’s approach to acting. Beginning with an actor’s physical life on stage, Larry helps the actor to reveal the depth of emotional meaning and importance of the character’s need in the text and encourages the actor to commit fully to their choices. This focus on story, personalisation and imagination gives actors a rich resource to access and a focus that allows the performer to reach their potential.

Larry’s breadth of experience as a teacher and director is second to none and actors under his tutelage develop richness in their work, deepening their approach to the craft

I am looking forward to my time in Australia. I am always moved by the immense desire I see in you and the sense of community that is so supportive and inspiring – Larry Moss

“I have just finished working with Welker White on the film Bad Education. We had several scenes together and I was always incredibly impressed and inspired by her work ethic, and how easy she made it all look. She is one of the great actors, living in a city filled with great actors. I know her and her husband Damian have a workshop that they do, and two of the other actors in the film had been involved in that workshop. And it’s precisely built for people trying to feel comfortable and relaxed and getting the best out themselves in front of the camera. I highly recommend this workshop. I kind of wish I had gone to something like this early on in my career. As someone who had been mainly in the theatre when I began, it took me a while to really feel that I was reaching a level of relaxation to allow my potential to come through on film so I think this is a really valuable thing to do for anyone who’s learning how to act.” – Hugh Jackman

“I’ve known Welker and Damian for 30 years. They bring rare extensive experience across the spectrum of film and television to bear on a unique approach that inspires actors to develop and own their artistic process onscreen. Find a way to work with them!” – Allison Janney – Academy Award Winner
