Our training is rooted in the tradition espoused by the major studios in NYC and other American based institutions. From the teachings of Constantin Stanislavski and his interpretations through Sanford Meisner and Uta Hagen, our focus is on “authentic performance.” This is based on the Stanislavski concept of “the actor living the part.” Working from the first person, subjective tradition, an actor’s performance is deeply rooted in truthful human behaviour and emotion. This authenticity is the hallmark of many of the great, New York trained American film/stage actors—like Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Jessica Lange, Faye Dunaway, Diane Keaton, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Harvey Keitel, to name a few.
At Rogues, we train actors to apply this authentic style of acting to both theatre and film. Our actors have an honesty and raw emotional power not taught by most other actor training programs in Canada. While we provide training in all aspects of the craft including Voice, Movement, Scene Study and Shakespeare, setting us apart is our in-depth classes in Meisner Technique and Acting for Film & TV. It is our belief that a well-trained actor can work in all mediums if their work is grounded in the truth of human behaviour and emotion; this is the essence of an “authentic performance style.” This is what separates us from other actor training programs.
Company of Rogues Actors’ Studio is deeply immersed in the vibrant theatre and film communities in both, Calgary, Alberta and Vancouver, B.C.. Our actors are sought after by local/regional casting directors, filmmakers and theatre companies alike. Furthermore, at Rogues all of our instructors are working professionals who offer the highest quality of instruction and mentorship; providing career counseling and guidance even beyond the term of the program.
