Philip Quast Masterclass

Theatre

Philip Quast Masterclass

An eight week scene work masterclass with one of the country’s most accomplished actors.

The HubStudio is thrilled to welcome back one of Australia’s great performing arts statesman. Philip Quast is a multi-award winning actor with over 35 years of experience in film, television and stage; having won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical three times.

This very special one-off series is an exceptional opportunity for working professionals to hone their skills in a practical and personalised theatre based master class; working through various acting techniques, scenes and monologues over an intensive eight week series.

Philip has a keen interest in the “connections” between performance mediums; looking at why the best actors are great both on screen and in theatre, including those multi-skilled from musical theatre. Philip understands the common link and through the six week intensive you will explore the fundamentals of this “cross training” principal, and why its so powerful for all working professionals.

At the core of Philip’s teaching is a holistic approach to acting including work to help restore the confidence of actors who have been bullied and have had traumatic experiences in the work place. Working from various source material, Philip gives the actor practical strategies to help boost speed of thought; increase their confidence with memory; as well as finding ways to balance technique with instinct. Philip also has a reputation for finding ways to help the actor understand and break habitual behaviour in order to free themselves. He believes that all actors, once given permission and the tools to “slow down”, can improve beyond measure.

The Philip Quast Masterclass is the perfect oportunity to learn from a highly accomplished actor who has actually been there; not a teacher working from theory, based on outside observation. As an Australian actor it’s essential to listen and learn from our masters. I encourage you to invest in your career through this incredible series. Come join us!
