Frank Suzuki Actor Knowhow Intensive Performance Training

Our Theatre Group
Description: Frank Suzuki Actor Knowhow (FSAK)
The FSAK involves the performer in an actor training system that prepares them by equipping them with the knowledge of the FSAK which is a grounding, empowering theatre training that improves individual clarity of mind, commitment and focus, develops imaginative play, physical and mental dexterity plus self definition and spatial awareness. As well the collective nature of the learning environment stimulates teamwork and personal co-operation.
Based on the thorough absorption of the deep physical and philosophical aspects of the Suzuki Method of Actor Training FSAK further extends the actor’s skills base developing comprehensive performance paradigms germane to the requirements of the modern Western actor.
Participants will be introduced to and learn skills of performance across multiple dramatic perspectives: FSAK applied as a tool to teach understanding of an actor’s body and voice in space showing the successful application of the training to rehearsal and performance. Appropriate for teachers of upper level students, students of drama and dance, active professional artists who wish to extend the knowledge and range of their own physical and vocal capabilities and creative workers across many disciplines.
The Zen nature of this study awakens the spirit force guiding both young and maturing artists.
Tadashi Suzuki, creator of the Suzuki Method of Actor Training, selected John Nobbs, co-director of Ozfrank, in 2009 to be one of his personally selected 7 international practitioners who currently form the Suzuki Symposium/Forum dedicated to the appropriate dissemination of Suzuki’s training world-wide.
John is the only Australian representative on the Forum. Suzuki personally endorses the Frank Suzuki Actor Knowhow as a study that fully develops the comprehensive performance outcomes of his actor training. Suzuki has stated that his system of training should be considered as a complete preparation for performance outcomes.
Ozfrank's Intensive Workshops provide an opportunity for those interested participants to experience performer training with two of the world’s best Frank/Suzuki teachers, Ozfrank co-directors John Nobbs and Jacqui Carroll in their unique actor training system Frank Suzuki Actor Knowhow fully incorporating the Suzuki Method of Actor Training.
