Kim Farrant

Kate Jaggard and Diva Cory of The Actors Room Byron Bay are hosting acclaimed director and acting coach, Kim Farrant, this March in Byron Bay for two of her life-changing masterclasses for actors, Raw Truth in Performance and Sexuality on Screen.

Kim directed Nicole Kidman, Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving in Strangerland (nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance), Angel of Mine with Noomi Rapace, Yvonne Strahovski and Luke Evans and recently the Netflix hit The Weekend Away with Leighton Meester and Ziad Bakri (number one on Netflix, worldwide, for ten days).

The Raw Truth Masterclass includes: scene work; detailed script analysis; how to give great meaning and visceral relationships to objects, people, places, issues, events and timeframes; unique effective tools on how to move through emotional and physical blocks that prevent you from accessing all your emotional and physical instruments in service of character; and techniques to further find the depth, breath, and masculine and feminine qualities in your characters.

Kim Farrant will also be running her Sexuality on Screen masterclass. This course is ultimately about empowering the actor to embody their birthright to their sexual energy and sensuality, which can then be used in service of character. 

It is hugely empowering, fun, challenging, intense and magical healing work. Actors will learn how to articulate safe and healthy boundaries when working with a sex scene, (no actor has to do anything they don’t want to do in terms of their own body, touch, sexuality or anyone else’s) and a step by step process of unique tools that help you move through limiting beliefs, conditioning and blocked emotions around your sexuality and your body.

Please note, participants will need to have previously attended or audited Raw Truth In Performance and have professional training/industry experience to participate.

Masterclasses run 11,12,13 and 17,18,19 March. For more information, visit: www.actorsroombyronbay.com.
