Course Overview

The HubStudio is very excited to have film coach, Nadia Townsend included in our 2018 line up. Nadia’s approach to acting is a culmination of 17 years of working in film, television and theatre as an actress and more recently as a Dramaturg. Nadia’s latest credits include, Mad Max 4 Fury Road, Brock, Soulmates, Ready For This, Love Child and Secret Daughter.

This 8 week course with limited places is an affordable way for actors to get the personalised attention they need to remain at the top of their game. Nadia is a director’s secret weapon and we are very excited to be able to offer this exclusive series to our professional actors. 

“The nature of our industry means that there’s times when passionate and well trained actors are left waiting, without work.  In that down time our instruments can get dull and when those rare opportunities arrive we need to be at our best.”

About Nadia Townsend

Nadia has been working as an actress in Australia and internationally for the last 17 years and more recently has become a much in demand dramaturg for film and television projects.  Nadia first trained with Atlantic Theatre Co in NYC then set up her own theatre company, producing independent theatre in Sydney.  She got her first TV gig on an ABC Ben Gannon production where she met long time mentor Nico Lathouris.  Nico ignited ideas and questions about drama that she has spent most of her adult life trying to answer.  

Nadia continues to train at the Roy Hart school of voice in France and with movement improvisor Tony Osborne.  Nadia has trained with US practitioners Ivana Chubbuck, Larry Moss, Ellen Burstyn.  The principles of Practical Aesthetics are still at the base of Nadia’s methodology but she has travelled the world to find practitioners and other practices from dance to marital arts that support and expand her ideas about the craft.
