What am I responsible for bringing to my acting and what do I leave to inspiration? These questions never end, they are different for every actor on every day and it’s a teacher’s job to help an actor with these questions as they prepare to be on set, on stage or in the audition room. In these classes, actors will learn their strengths and what they need to work on in front of the camera. Points of emphasis will be: seeking out visceral objectives; the belief that an objective is attainable; finding compelling obstacles through both character and in-depth script analysis; and learning to be comfortable being uncomfortable while working in front of the camera through breath and physical awareness on existing film and television scripts.

"I taught and studied at the Professional Actors Lab for 9 years. At Equity Showcase, I trained for 5 and taught for 2 years. As a young man I trained at Bishop’s University and Studio 58 in Vancouver. I direct, act and continue to study in Toronto. ‘But why is it called The Dirt Underneath Actors’ Space?’ Actors need a place to practice. To dig in the dirt."

TESTIMONIAL - ACTOR EVAN BULIUNG (Damnation, Pericles, Stratford Festival - upcoming: Mercutio in Romeo & Juliet)
"John Gordon gave me insight into characters that I could never have come up with on my own, with subtle and nuanced direction he opened up worlds of thought that led to me booking many projects. His space is a warm and welcoming place to make the best self tapes possible to present to casting agents whether for film or theatre. I can't recommend The Dirt enough!"
