Natela's classes are the best classes I have ever attended. I wish I were in Sydney… On the plus side, I'm in LA and my career is going well. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Natela. I'm not just saying that I seriously wish I could study with Natela here in LA.
- Laura Rossi, LA Actor.
Dear Natela! I thoroughly enjoyed every lesson I had with you. In fact I have never felt so inspired for so long! It’s as if I have grown my own set of wings! I can strongly recommend your Mechanics of Emotion, Presence and Charisma course to any actor who is passionate about their craft as I am. Michael Chekhov’s Acting Technique is the most readily available, harmonious and creative method there is. I cannot thank you enough for teaching it to me!
Ive just finished shooting a guest role for 2 episodes on All Saints. It was alot of work but really fun onset with the cast and crew, they're such a friendly group. After that I'm gearing up for shooting a pilot as one of the main roles for a new teleseries entitled 'The Pub'. That'll happen in roughly a month. Then I have another guest role on a series thats currently in production called 'Rock Chikz', and then I have another role for a feature film called 'Toolies'. Both of those are in August/September/October.
So yeah, really busy! I'm bragging, I know, but I thought you'd like to know that for some of the more intense castings I did use Chekhov, it made it alot easier to focus on the job. I'm excited for the future and I feel more focused and determined."
- Clayton Moss, Actor "Dealing with Destiny" (2011).
I've really loved the course and will definitely do it again! I've learned something valuable every time, I wish I'd done this years ago!
I also like the way you teach, it's always a very open atmosphere at class and you feel you can try things and experiment with the things you've learned. It's not always like that in acting classes, we were just talking about it with the other students that sometimes it's scary to try anything because some teachers "shoot" you down for it.
So yes, you will definitely see me back!

Who is Michael Chekhov?
Michael Chekhov (1891 - 1955) was the nephew of the playwright Anton Chekhov and was widely recognized as one of the greatest actors of the 20th century. He taught his acting technique to Hollywood stars: Gary Cooper, Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, Patricia Neal, Clint Eastwood, Anthony Quinn, Ingrid Bergman, Jack Palance, Lloyd Bridges, Anthony Hopkins, Elia Kazan, Mala Powers, Marlon Brando… (list goes on).
Noted actors Jack Nicholson, while receiving his 1999 Golden Globe Award, and Anthony Hopkins, on "Inside the Actors Studio", both acknowledged the power of Michael Chekhov's Psychological Gesture. Today, the Chekhov techniques are gaining world-wide recognition in an amazing expansion of interest as artists seek to discover a consistent means to peak states of performance.
“As Michael's pupil, I learned more than acting... Every time he spoke, the world seemed to become bigger and more exciting. . . Acting became important . . . an art that increased your life and mind. Acting became more than a profession to me. It became sort of a religion”
- Marilyn Monroe
A play rehearsal is interrupted by the arrival of a divided family who have been abandoned by their creator and are seeking an author, ‘any author’, to give them a ‘definitive artistic form’ so their stories may be staged. While the first performance of Luigi Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author to a Rome audience in May 1921 was almost booed off the stage it has gone on to have many successful seasons and is still a major part of the theatrical repertoire. The play, in part, is Pirandello’s attack on the Italian theatre of the time, with its actor-managers and star-systems, its stock characterisations, and its standard repertoire of romantic melodramas. However, it is a play on many levels. It raises questions about the nature of reality, of what constitutes identity, and how we can gauge what is truth. On another level it is a hysterical romantic melodrama about a warring family who live out their emotions on the skin. And, it is also a deeply tragic revenge narrative – a tale of betrayal, adultery, suicide and death. Students enrolled in theatre studies at UWA present this very physical, at times comedic, and often provocatively philosophical play, virtually uncut and unlike many productions we choose not to attempt to modernise it into the contemporary world of electronic media.
