Drama Workshops in Sydney

Our drama workshops for the first semester 2019 are full. Watch this page for information about our next sessions.

“Congratulations must go to the culturally diverse cast for a splendid evening’s entertainment.” South Sydney Herald, 2018 about our end of workshop show


Théâtre Excentrique started their drama workshops for adults 4 years ago, first in their rehearsal space in Botany, then in Redfern. 

This year, the classes are designed for adults with an intermediate level. We will focus on naturalistic acting and learn everything about the Actor’s Studio, Stanislavski and other Method Acting techniques. Former NIDA teacher Gerry Sont will intervene alongside Anna Jahjah to share his knowledge.

We will use warm up exercises, games, improvisations and short scenes to learn the techniques as we go.

Our ultimate goal? A full length play in front of a friendly audience, performed 3 nights in a row!

About the teachers: Anna Jahjah and Gerry Sont
