Clarence was the founder and Artistic Director of The Actors Studio Australia and has spent more than a decade training actors. He is the architect of a groundbreaking approach harnessing techniques from master teachers such as Meisner, Strasberg, Stanislavsky, Chubbuck and more designed to build performers who bring, depth, honesty and a vivid sense of truth to their work. Clarence unpacks the craft of acting with unique clarity and arms the actor one tool at a time. His approach aims to teach actors to work from the inside out; to work from a starting point of real feelings rather than false external expression; to fill their work with a vital element of truth; and to always be guided by the principle that emotional authenticity is the key to engaging an audience’s imagination.
