PACT Theatre,  Erskinville. 

Ninefold is an experiment in sustained actor training. We continue to train weekly you can follow us on Facebook @ Ninefold Ensemble

Since 2012  the Ninefold Ensemble have trained together in The Suzuki Method of Actor Training, created by world-renowned theatre director Tadashi Suzuki.

Our ongoing work aims to understand how the philosophies and principles of the highly rigorous Suzuki Method of Actor Training speak to the theatre making and rehearsal process. Focused on qualities of stillness, energy and breath. The Suzuki Method can often be misunderstood as mere physical or movement training. However, its true beauty lies in its work with the imagination, and the artist learning to manage their invisible body: that is their breath, their states of energy and their stillness.
