Make yourself more castable by using your unique qualities as an actor to build richly detailed characters.

When: 9.30am – 2.30pm Sat 20th & 10am – 3pm Sun 21st April

Register your interest before 6pm Wednesday the 27th March.

Imagine bringing characters to life in a unique way, with unmatched depth and authenticity. It would set you apart in every role and every audition. Where could that take your career?

No doubt you’re already trying to achieve this depth in your performances. But even experienced actors struggle with this. Why?

Many actors lack the internal technique needed to support the external. If the internal foundations aren’t in place it causes performances to come across as forced, or even phoney.

Get the internal technique mastered and you find yourself ‘in the zone’ – your performance flows effortlessly. You’re no longer working the scene, the scene “just happens to happen”, as Tom says.

This is why actors love working with Tom Kibbe. He simplifies the process of developing that internal technique.

Tom spent years training with the three all-time great acting teachers – Stella Adler, Lee Strasberg, and Sanford Meisner (yes, really – you can listen to the full story here). And he has spent years building on the foundations of their teachings to develop his own techniques.

As a result, this work is unique to Tom Kibbe, and you will not experience anything like this elsewhere.

Opportunities to work in-person with Tom don’t come around that often. There hasn’t been a weekend workshop since the end of Summer last year, but there’s one coming up in April.

It’s perfect for you if you haven’t yet worked with Tom, or if you haven’t completed his full programme ‘Techniques Of Modern Realist Acting’.
