As an actor, do you find that you don’t have time to become a better actor? Have you ever considered acting classes that are practical, fun and designed to engage you in a stronger understanding of the dramatic situation?


Are you involved in productions in which you, and the cast, appear to be learning lines and very little else?

Does the process feel rushed, compromised and constrained by schedules and commitment issues?


The Sticking Place offers a range of tailored acting classes, both individual and group, that are dedicated to the art of process and the communication of the dramatic situation within complex, language-based texts.


The Sticking Place Acting Classes Emphasise:

The dramatic situation and the pedagogy of presence and absence

Scene studies and textual understanding of classic and contemporary plays

Given circumstances, partial truths and ‘as ifs’

Listening and reacting through play

Action, activity and the transitive verb

Physicalisation exercises that build authenticity

Improvisation, invention and imagination

Speech-making and presentation

Performance tips, stagecraft and presence

The greatest performance is invariably a by-product of preoccupation…
