Beautiful Bowen Island

A special gathering of dedicated actors who will…

IGNITE their passion and ground their work
PARTICIPATE in the creation of a new industry project

Actors will workshop and collaborate on exercises of character - an exhaustive and exhilarating unveiling of the self and character and an unearthing of the best of who they are…

And actors will participate in the production of a new creative project - a property each member of the intensive will share in ownership. The group will workshop and create a film/stage work, working with guest writers and directors, highlighting the best of what we could create…
