Action Theater™

Physical Theatre Improvisation Training for Performing Artists.

Action Theater™ is a body-based physical theatre improvisation training which expands physical, vocal and verbal performance skills. Action Theater™ serves to hone the awareness of the plethora of material waiting to be experienced in order to make it available to be played with. “The more you notice, the more you have to play with!” says practitioner and teaching artist, Danielle Cresp.

Danielle Cresp is a Melbourne based Action Theater Practitioner, an Award Winning Director and has been described as a virtuosic improviser.
Danielle became a Licensed Action Theater teacher under the watchful eyes of Ruth Zaporah in the heat of the New Mexican desert back in 2011. Since then she has founded Action Theater Australia and has taught over 85 SOLD OUT workshops, receiving many FIVE STAR reviews for her teaching, coaching and directing across Australia, UK and America! Danielle’s focus as a teaching-artist, director and improviser is on physically embodied presence. She says: “The more you notice, the more you have to play with!”
