Testimonials

“Kevin Jackson is truly one of Australia’s finest acting teachers. His passion, knowledge, approach and insights always inspire me. His classes are an invaluable resource for the professional actor who continues to explore and investigate this craft. Kevin allows the professional actor the freedom to play, to fail, to grow. I don’t know of any other place that offers continued training for the already trained or working actor. For those actors beginning their journey, run to these classes and observe Kevin do his thing. You are bound to be a better actor for it”  Les ChanteryPitch Black, Cedar Boys, Sleeping Beauty

“During Series 1 of the classes I was cast in a regular role on a television series, and having the weekly classes truly helped to cement the practical and performance techniques in my mind and body. I signed on for series two as the classes are a unique opportunity to work with other actors looking to exercise, improve and practice their craft. It has been incredible to find a class unlike any others out there, unlike the rigidity of an institution the classes are open, warm, creative and thought provoking. I always leave feeling a little braver and more passionate, reminded that you can never stop learning.” Sophie Hennser – Tricky Business (Ch 9)

“The standard Kevin holds for what a actor should be is by far the highest I have come across. I have found it to be the closest thing to experiencing Stanislavski himself.  It is a must to experience Kevin’s class if you have not.” Gustavo Barbosa

“I took this Master Class because I believe actors should always be training. No matter how long you’ve been in the business there is always someone who has been in it longer and can pass on new ideas, new ways of working, and new insights into your work. Half way through the class and already I have picked up a dozen tips and new approaches to the craft that will only help me in my future work.” Robert Tsonos

This pilot project aims to introduce people with a disability to performance based arts – theatre and acting – in the three Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Macarthur. The project is about the core and growth of the individuals involved, taking a person centred approach to celebrate people with a disability. Key components of the project are as follows:

  • Initial meetings and workshops will take place between June and November in a venue in the LGA where participants live.
  • Two separate weeks of rehearsals at Campbelltown Arts Centre are scheduled for 11-16 November and 3-7 December.
  • Public performance in the week of International Day of People with a Disability, December 2012

The project is being led by Kevin Jackson. During the development phase, Kevin has sought to meet with as many people with disabilities as possible, expecting that some people not seen as obvious candidates may be drawn to the project when he speaks about his work. Once the three groups of participants are established Kevin will work with each group, teaching his approach to acting and shaping the work to be performed in December 2012.

The project will take shape through initial meetings with the partners and the participants and then regular sessions with Kevin that draw on participants’ interests, connections and skills. This process begins with conversations in which participants develop an understanding and learning about themselves that is essential to the art of acting. These sessions will grow into workshops and will determine a performance that embodies the particular attributes of the participants. This process reflects Kevin Jackson’s approach to people, acting and teaching.

While the project hinges on process rather than the results, the final performance directed by Kevin Jackson is also important and will be fully supported by Campbelltown Arts Centre.

Project Partners

The project partners are Macarthur Disability Services Ltd), Campbelltown Arts Centre, Campbelltown City Council, Camden Council and Wollondilly Shire Council. Each partner is contributing funding towards the project and in-kind support to ensure the social and artistic development, transport needs of participants, provision of venues and resources, technical support, documentation, evaluation, reporting, community liaison and promotional needs of the project are met.
