ACADEMY Award nominees Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper don’t just have good looks in common – both are students of acting coach Elizabeth Kemp, coming to Perth this July.
Presented by Melbourne’s 16th Street Actors Studio in association with The Actors’ Hub in Subiaco, Kemp is making a return to WA to deliver the Character Dream Masterclass – Evolution.
Kemp is associate artistic director of The Actors Studio, a New York-based organisation for professional actors, theatre directors and playwrights best known for its work refining and teaching method acting.
Founded in 1947, it is currently run by Al Pacino, Ellen Burstyn and Harvey Keitel – an actor Kemp still coaches.
Hugh Jackman said he was honoured and blessed to be able to work with Elizabeth Kemp.
“She has added many layers of depth to not only my process but also my experience as an actor,” he said. “Allowing me to find connections and freedom that I have not felt before.”
Kemp’s six-day masterclass gets participants to delve even deeper and take the sacred journey from the birth of a character through to performance.
The Character Dream Masterclass – Evolution runs July 5 to 10 in Perth – go to actorshubperth.com.au/master-classes to apply.
The Actors’ Hub is located at the Subiaco Arts Centre, 180 Hamersley Road, Subiaco.
