The Equity Professional Program

The Equity Foundation hosts more than 100 events a year throughout Australia and New Zealand. The program is developed in close collaboration with performers.

Masterclasses
The Equity Foundation's masterclasses are designed to address our members’ need for ongoing professional development and provide rare opportunities to work with leading directors, coaches and casting agents.
Workshops
Our workshop series is an opportunity to work on specifics, such as acting for the camera, comedy, dancing, voiceovers and accents. Up to 10 members work over a two-hour period with an expert in their field.
In Conversation
As part of the foundation’s In Conversation series, performers are given the opportunity to attend an intimate question and answer session with leading international actors and directors. Sir Ian McKellen, Richard E Grant, Sam Neill, and Cate Blanchett are among those who have participated in the In Conversation events.
Casting Hothouse 
Each year the Equity Foundation hosts a Casting Hothouse, which gives performers a unique opportunity to work with international casting agents, such as CBS TV Studios’ vice president of casting Matt Skrobalak and US feature film casting director Margery Simkin.
Student Days
We know how difficult it can be getting a toehold in the entertainment industry, so each year the Equity Foundation holds an industry day designed to provide graduates with important information and tools to help them on their way to a successful performance career.

Reboot With Feldenkrais

07 Sep 2015
18:00:00 -  20:00:00

Event description:

Like an overloaded laptop, sometimes we find ourselves feeling the drag of unwanted(self) image files, and other outdated programs habitually running in the background and slowing us down. Through guided, gentle movement sequences, the Feldenkrais Method provides the opportunity to clear away unwanted junk files, making you feel refreshed with increased processing speed and greater functional power, both physically and mentally.  In this workshop, you will discover how ‘Awareness through Movement’ classes offer actors the opportunity to keep their skills fresh, honed and ready for performance. Wear loose comfortable clothing, bring a towel and enjoy!
