We are directors, theatre makers and actors - A revolutionary group driven by a desire to make a positive change.
We step beyond traditional boundaries, fusing emerging practices with innovative techniques to bridge physicality and emotion.
We’ve seen first-hand the challenges and inequalities that face our industry and we know how hard it can be, so we're here to open doors for actors who are bold, who dare to take risks, and who aren't afraid to learn from mistakes.
Our philosophy is simple: be unafraid to ask the 'what ifs' and the 'why nots'. Unbound by the status quo, we don't just follow paths; we forge them.
Our belief? There's no single 'right' way to do things. We answer only to our vision, embracing a non-conformist approach to actor training.
Join us at The Actor Rebellion, and be part of a movement that's redefining the path into acting, one step at a time.
"My training here has been invaluable, I feel as I have had amazing amounts of growth and it has given me the tools and skills to better my craft and to work in the industry."
Mitch, Graduating student of 2023
Our approach to training begins with one important tenet – you are enough.
The work of the actor should be the pursuit of life. So, we help our actors to follow their impulses and find more organic connections, using techniques inspired by the evolving practices of Meisner and Stanislavski, adapted for the 21st Century.
We know that training must constantly evolve to meet the demands of modern audiences and the new ways in which we tell stories. Whether it’s gaming, VR, or immersive theatre, we give our actors the tools to live truthfully in their circumstances and produce performances that connect with their audience.
We want our actors to feel fearless, able to meet the moment without self-judgement and the confidence to navigate the challenges of an ever-changing industry.
