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.

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.
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.

The registration period is from 08 Nov 2017 09:00:00 to 22 Nov 2017 22:00:00

Event description:

“So many actors are not at home in their bodies & cannot make themselves still. The Alexander Technique shows actors their personal habits & fidget.” - Howard Fine.

Self tapes and screen work are about stillness & presence. Both come from a dynamic body. Join us at this workshop to experience the skills of The Alexander Technique which will identify excessive and unwanted postural and movement habits (facial, vocal & physical) which detract from your performance.Working in this way will allow you to ‘be” rather than to “do” and give you your power in your Self Tapes for Pilot Season.
