We strongly recommend the use of traditional Japanese white tabi socks for SMAT. Tabi can be purchased from Nine Years Theatre at $20 per pair. Participants may also get their own tabi from outside sources. Please ensure that the tabi is white in colour, made of 100% cotton, with 4 buckles. It should be a snug fit.

The Suzuki Method of Actor Training

Through working on more advanced exercises and the revision of some basic exercises, this class aims to help participants deepen the practice and understanding of the training.

About Suzuki Method of Actor Training:

The Suzuki Method of Actor Training is a training system created by Japanese director Tadashi Suzuki. Through a series of disciplines (basic exercises), the method focuses on enhancing the three important aspects of the actors' art: energy production, breath calibration, and centre of gravity. Taken together, these three aspects work towards the cultivation of the “invisible body”, the uncovering of the actor's inner potential and the development of a creative actor.

This training requires committed physical work from the actor.
