Elizabeth Kemp

Elizabeth Kemp – Masterclass

This immersive 6-day Masterclass will take actors on a sacred journey from the birth of a character through to performance. Elizabeth’s Dreamwork introduces actors to the language of the soul, the very essence of their creativity,  discovering and exploring the fusion between themselves and the characters they play and ultimately, transforming.

“Elizabeth Kemp’s talent and dedication to the actor is profound.

I was fortunate to participate in Elizabeth’s first Character Dream Workshop in Melbourne at 16th Street in 2013. It was here I discovered new layers to ‘being open’ and arrived at a deeper place within my work. 

In her workshop I was able to explore my own willingness and energetic capacity to delve deeper into the life of the character. This unleashed a new confidence, a new discipline and a new sense of grace in the approach to my work.  As actors we must work hard, we must give up distraction and judgement, but we must also tread delicately as we delve into our lives, our history banks and our imaginations whilst honouring and channelling the lives of our characters.

I believe Elizabeth is one of the best and most brilliant artistic leaders on the planet today.”

– Olivia Solomons, Graduate of 16th Street’s Full Time Program

The Actors’ Hub and 16th Street Actors Studio are once again delighted to host Elizabeth Kemp’s Character Dream Workshop in Perth this coming July 2017. Building on an extension of the character work developed at The Actors Studio, Elizabeth Kemp has created a unique workshop using interpretations of dreams through the theories of Carl Jung. The Character Dream Workshop allows the actor to explore and discover the character’s ‘Shadow’ and ‘Tragic Flaw’, and through this process bring the character to the light.

Elizabeth Kemp’s Character Dream Workshop

Each artist will choose a character on whom they will do research from childhood into the adult years; actors are expected to choose a character they feel they must do. This is a character that, in some way, you intuit will be transformative, especially now at this time in your life. The character can be literary, mythological, fictional, historical or ancestral. This process, that will be experienced in the workshop, has been developed by Elizabeth over 20 years from workshops she has taught worldwide in such cities as Warsaw, Berlin, Athens, Rome, Paris, New York, Stockholm and Brussels.

The workshop is Method based ~ the work brought to us by Constantin Stanislavski, then Lee Strasberg and into The Actors Studio, infused with exercises inspired by the dream work of Carl Jung. The work is deep, and integrated with imagery used from your own subconscious ~ symbols of your dreams.

Elizabeth is the one of single most inspiring, transformative, present human beings I have had the great fortune of working with.

Her generosity, fierceness, open heart, passion and dedication to the craft and to humanity is profound – she is at once both a master of the craft and a liberator of the human soul.

-Cody Fern —  Warhorse, Heath Ledger Scholarship recipient

WANT TO GET INTO THAT DREAM ACTING SCHOOL?

It’s that time of the year again! Auditions are about to begin for all the top drama schools around Australia. The only hurdle is the audition process. You think to yourself…”If I can survive that, I will be on my way to my dream career.”

Do you feel auditions are too much pressure, cost a lot of money, and are loaded with too many expectations? And on top of that everyone always asks you about them afterwards – adding that extra stress?

Are your tormented by the question how will you feel if you put in all this work and don’t get the results you want?

Do you feel like there is so much riding on your audition causing you to never show your true potential?

When the audition is looming and your confidence is waning this program will get you performing at the top of your game and achieving that competitive edge.

I remember being so afraid, not so much nervous but afraid, of the panel, of the room, of taking up too much time, of everything! The Hub has taught me to own the space and remember that everyone in that audition wants me to succeed, they’re on my side, and it’s MY audition not theirs. With that in mind I wasn’t that afraid anymore, nervous yes but I go into the room with a different headspace, to win!”

Angela Mahlatjie

I used to have this dangerous misconception that auditioning was a stressful time that you practically needed to act like a robot in order to please. And that wasn’t serving me any favours. The Hub taught me that its all about showing your personality and having fun in the room. Because that’s what will get you remembered. The audition is your time to show them why they need you. So look at it as your audition of them! The Hub taught me to take a breath, play your brand and make them remember you through bold choices and an attitude to win!”
