The Gonsalves Method, was developed by the incredible actor and director Aileen Gonsalves and is inspired by Sanford Meisner’s work. Cause and effect was something that Meisner believed in, one of his most famous quotes being “you can’t say ouch until you’ve been pinched” - acting is reacting.
Working with The Gonsalves Method transformed Gabi’s perspective and acting entirely, and she is exhilarated to be teaching the REP company this simple, methodical step-by-step approach that hones intention and trains attention.
She further explains that it helps prepare the actor effectively to be present and guarantees increased authentic connection between the actors and their audience every time.'

The programme is designed to be completed entirely through distance learning, to fit around your schedule. Aimed at those who have completed their performing arts training, and may have already worked in the industry, the course is designed to help you reflect upon your journey to this point, research the avenues you wish to pursue next, and bridge the gap to take the next steps on your career journey. Through a wide variety of online resources, live and recorded webinars, group and individual tutorials, presentations, film creation, research projects and written work, you will deeply evaluate your own professional practice and personal qualities and attributes, extensively consider and research an area of the performing arts industry that interests you, and prepare a professional project that moves you towards that goal, through either the creation of a professional portfolio, an action research project or a written dissertation.
The programme focuses on you and your personal and professional development, training you in the reflective and research skills required to get you from where you are to where you want to be. We teach you how to critically reflect upon your life and work experience to date, intensively research the options you’re interested in pursuing and help you bridge the gap between where you are and where you wish to go next.
