Being an actor, director and founder of the Australian Acting Academy, I have found useful workshops and instructors harder and harder to find. Over the past 20 years I have either dabbled or studied Method, Meisner, Practical Aesthetics, Impulse work and Eric Morris. Because of this I was delighted and somewhat skeptical when I was accepted as an actor for Theatrelab 05 Master class with world famous LA acting coach Ivana Chubbuck.
Despite her clientele reading like a whose who of Oscar winners I was still concerned that this lady would bring nothing new, and like many other workshops just tell me the same thing in a different way. Any fears of this were soon dispelled in the first 15 minutes of the master class. There was a new Fear to replace them, Ivan Chubbuck.
