Emma Harvey and Jordan Holloway from The Actors' Hub Gap program explore emotions under the surface in What Lies Beneath.

Students from The Actors' Hub Gap program are about to show off their skills in What Lies Beneath and auditions for next year's course are now open.

Through focused training and support, The Actors' Hub helps professional-minded actors, whether beginners or seasoned professionals, deliver consistent performance outcomes to achieve and maintain a competitive edge. The Gap course has been created to bridge the gap into the industry, offering numerous performance opportunities and training from nationally and internationally-recognised teachers.

What Lies Beneath features The Actors' Hub second-year Gap students after a year of studying and challenging the foundations of acting, they work with industry professionals on performance projects in their second year.

Directed by Amanda Crewes and Ella Hethertington, it is their fourth performance project for 2015. "What Lies Beneath is an extraordinary exploration of the powerful emotions we hide beneath the surface when pushed to our extremes," Crewes said.

"This creative approach is guaranteed to give you a different perspective on what is going on behind the facade of normal we often see in others, as we delve into passions, delights, fears, desires and frustrations on a journey to find the individual talents that lie within each of us. Everyone is born with extraordinary capability so what happens to all that talent as we bump through life, getting by, but never realising our true potential?"

Amanda said performance experiences such as What Lies Beneath gave Gap students the opportunity to test what they are learning in the classroom. And with The Actors' Hub's connections to the industry, she said 77 per cent of students go on to find employment.

"Performances form such an essential part of their training," she said. "The second-year projects are each designed to give students a real experience of what it's like to work with a production team to put on a show to industry standards. They are not only required to demonstrate mastery over their craft but also mastery over the management of the product which is themselves. Many a great acting career has come to an end due to personal mismanagement."

With What Lies Beneath, Amanda described the show as a physical theatre piece. "It is hard to explore the content any other way," she said. "The physical demands it places on the actors is quite challenging and an exciting part of the project. My co-director Ella Hetherington is such an exciting physical theatre practitioner to work with."
