This week I chat to the life force that is Matthew Harrison, Canadian actor and international acting teacher who has lifted the game for many actors here in Cape Town, where he’s been teaching at the beginning of each year for some time now.
Matthew founded ‘The Actor’s Foundry’ with a supercharged approach to emotional preparation as well as a fundamentally clear direction on understanding story structure from the actor’s perspective. He offers some solid and uncompromising advice for creating a weekly routine that every actor needs to be attentive to.
There is an embedded misconception within the acting industry that is not a healthy one. Matthew Harrison speaks about how actors can work towards a more pragmatic and effective acting life. If you ever wondered what an Actor’s Work Week looks like, listen in to this next part of the conversation…
We are joined by actor and founder of Kiri Pink Nob Arts, Jefferson Tshabalala. He is an award-winning theatre practitioner, his performance live arts production house Kiri Pink Nob Arts produces comedy shows, plays, stand-up comedy shows, and a variety of performance type events. His games have been such a success that he has even started producing screen and stage adapted game shows. 2014 saw him nominated for the Best Emerging Voice award at the Naledi Theatre Awards, and in 2015 his production of “Secret Ballot” was nominated for Best Ensemble Production. In his live game show Off The Record won the Gold Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival.
