"I’ve been telling everyone I know about this, but you can really only understand by doing. The funny thing is that, with a little guidance, you realise that you’ve know these feelings your whole life. It’s the best methodology (if you want to call it that) I’ve ever experienced for bringing me back to my body.

It is tangible, progressive and [...]
The first few days of the PEM Wellington workshop have been met with surprise, enthusiasm and delight by New Zealand actors. It's clear this group of actors know the meaning of hard work and dedication to craft. We very much look forward to the rest of the workshop! Here's one of many testimonials from the actors. "No other technique or method has ever been able to answer what to do when you don't have an acting partner to work with." - Serena Cotton

We'd like to say thank you to all participants and organizers in Melbourne, Sydney and Gold Coast and the Actors Assembly for such great events and the remarkable interest everybody showed in what PEM has to offer. We have forged new relationships and [...]
More impressions from our first workshop in Melbourne!
We are excited to share pictures from the first day of the PEM workshop in Melbourne!
After our successful workshops there, we continue the tour in Melbourne and Gold Coast.

For the first time in a long time I was in tune with my body and had freedom of my instrument. It taped into my body's core, allowing my body to react with out needing to rely on imagining. In the same way it meant that I didn't have to relive past trauma and was given the tools to easily diconnect [...]

Workshop review by Badaidilaga Maftuh-flynn: "Exceptional! such a practical and versatile technique.

PEM Master Instructor Sarah Victoria was invited to hold a one-day workshop for second-year students and graduates of the renowned Actors Centre Australia in Sydney during her workshop tour through the country. The workshop taking place on Wednesday, 22 November 2016, was booked out within an hour. Hugh Jackman has been the patron of the Actors Centre Australia since 2007. The well-known actor of many international movies and theatre productions proudly accepted the role after graduating from its full-time course in 1991. We are very excited to bring the PEM process to such an important facility whose creative director is [...]
