Course Overview

This course is for anyone who has previously trained with Nadia. A chance to work with like minded colleagues in a way that you already know resonates with you. Nadia is a renowned film and television coach and dramaturge whose process is designed to get actors working at their full potential, not just as actors but as artist and as the unique human beings they are. Actors often walk out of Nadias classes feeling grounded, alive, re-invigorated about their potential within the work, loaded with new tools and techniques to access text as well as stay present with scene partners.

Nadia works with the upmost of integrity and rigour and asks nothing less of her students. This course is for those who have already experienced what Nadia has to offer and is up for a new year re-boot one day intensive.

This is a one day intensive designed to get you out of your head and into your body, an opportunity to tune back in and give yourself a craft pick me up. Delve deeper into the practice of active relaxation, putting your attention on the other person, listening with your whole body, being present, working spontaneously, exercising emotional availability, letting your body react before your brain censors what you are doing.

Using small scenes the participants will be on the floor for the majority of the day with short breaks for debrief and reflection.

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.
