Aspiring Actors & Inspiring Performers to be
Acting is often misunderstood as an act of pretence, that needs a lot of schooling, training and hard work to develop. Acting is actually very easy if you consider it as not all that different from your everyday life. All you have to learn is how to be yourself. Drawing from your behaviours, feelings, rituals, thinking and experiences, without faking any of it. To be able to tap freely into the huge diversity and reservoir of your personality, and use it with no fear, lays the foundation for a good actor.
A liberating and joyous workshop, you will be warmly & gently guided by a tutor who has developed his own unique way, on how to tap into our incredibly huge pot of creativity, humour & humanity.

"The workshop with Justus was amazing. What a great teacher he is! Even though the group was made up of people who all came from completely different backgrounds (from professional actor to massage therapist and artist) all the exercises were challenging and interesting for everyone. At the end of the two days we had effortlessly improvised scenes and stories with each other, stripped ourselves from our "acting" ideas and were able to get closer to our "neutral" self (which is so so hard to find). And this is a workshop that is never over. I could do it again and again, and every time I'd get closer to that point of being in touch with the creativity we are all trying to get to in life."
