Theatre Works is delighted to present the powerful masterclass for actors by acting coach Kim Farrant.


Acclaimed director Kim is back in Australia in between directing films to teach her RAW TRUTH IN PERFORMANCE masterclass in Melbourne.

Kim has also directed television in Australia (Rush) as well as making multiple award winning short films and feature length and half hour documentaries.


Truth in performance is what makes a performance stab you in the heart, blindside you or expand your mind beyond its limitations. Raw truth is an actors greatest pursuit.


Scene Work. Detailed Script Analysis; How to give greater meaning and visceral relationships to Objects; People, Places, Issues, Events and Time Frames; How to find the Subtext in a scene and differentiate with Inner Monologue; Unique Effective Tools on how to move through historical emotional blocks that prevent you from accessing all of your emotional and physical instrument in service of character and; techniques to further find the depth and breadth, and masculine and feminine qualities in your characters. How to embody a character from a place of truth and safety.

Max 12 participants. Max 12 auditors.


Due Date for Applications: 4pm Friday 24th June


OPEN TO ALL ACTORS with either industry experience or professional training.


Here’s what our literary manager has to say of her experience auditing Kim’s class:


“Auditing Kim’s RAW TRUTH masterclass several years ago singularly advanced my artistic process in just 2 days. It had a profound impact on how I see myself as a person, as an artist and how I practice both daily. I still refer to the work today and cannot recommend this masterclass highly enough for professional theatre artists.”
Briony Dunn, Literary Manager, Theatre Works
