Spolin Acting Technique – The art of play to make us truly present!


The Spolin Acting Technique will be taught by Trudi Boatwright. Trudi Boatwright is the only qualified practitioner in Australia!


What is It?


Viola Spolin was an American practitioner focused on acting and creative expression through the theory of ‘play’.


Acting requires presence in the moment. Playing produces this state. When we are at play our physical and mental state merge into a unified whole, devoted only to the problem at hand – the playing of the game. After all, a game is just a problem (or set of problems) that need solving. When we truly play, our intuitive ability engages and our minds become fully focused on the problem that the game asks us to solve. Through spontaneity and organism-as-a-whole behavior we can learn to be truly present as actors.


This course allows actors to dissolve the approval/disapproval syndrome and learn to be present in their acting proving anyone can act and improvise. Anyone who wishes to can play in the theatre and become ‘stage worthy’. This course is more than improvisation – it is truly learning the art of play and intuitive awareness.



Trudi Boatwright has recently returned from London where she worked as an actor, teacher and Spolin practitioner. Having ventured to the U.S. to undertake Spolin study, she has run classes for children and adults. As an actor she has performed throughout the UK & EU including the Soho Theatre and St James Cavalier. She is also the artistic director for In Company Theatre. She is currently the only US trained practitioner in Australia and is proud to bring her teachings to Point Break Drama Acting School.


‘As the only other exclusively Spolin trained side coach in Britain, Trudi Boatwright was an invaluable member of the faculty at The Actor Works in London. Her knowledge, spirit and enthusiasm brought out the very best in my students, creating the most fruitful of learning environments’
