Actors Lab began in 2016 as a way for professional actors based in Mallorca to continue to train at a high level. No actor was too big or too small to join. We even had famed method actor and Oscar winner Melissa Leo come to a workshop and gave some inspiring advice.
Guest directors would join sessions, none too big none too small, so we would meet young up and coming as well as established Spanish, German and British directors.
Actors from Actors Lab have appeared on many screens including the BBC, IB3, RTL, Amazon, Netflix and of course in cinemas. This is the aim of Actors Lab; get you where you want to be.
Oliver Torr – Acting Teacher.
I have been teaching acting for 18 years now. Along the way I have worked with hundreds of actors who have gone on to make careers on stage and in front of the camera (quite a few in Hollywood). My specialty is giving all students the ability to identify and improve their own talent. Every single actor is unique, every single actor is different and I treat everyone who attends class this way.
From mastering Shakespeare and the classics to getting to the emotion that the directors will want to see, we can do it all.
I work with beginners through to professional working actors. My job is to make your job easier, to get those auditions and be totally prepared, which emotions to use, how to approach the character vocally and physically.
I have been working at the highest level of actor training for nearly two decades and my goal is to make non-actors into actors and good actors into great actors.
I am a classically trained actor, with a Masters degree in directing. Techniques I use include Strasberg, Meisner, Meyerhold, Grotowski, Suzuki, SITI and Linklater. I teach in English, Castellano and German. I understand flexibility is important therefore I offer regular classes, one on ones, audition specific and intensives. I have taught actors, opera singers, classical musicians and dancers. My focus is on living the character as much as possible in the most efficient way possible.
