Fake Nuclear Psychologist, Professor Hurtz van Rentel cranks out a wacky take on the Frank Suzuki Actor Knowhow, the very backbone of Ozfrank Theatre Fillum... It’s a rather humorous explanation of the Frank Suzuki Actor Knowhow done in full HD, using Ozfrank's schematic almanac as a backdrop.

It has 3 tracks, an explanation of the exercises, an advertorial and an exposition of the various inspirations.

The Frank Suzuki Actor Knowhow is an occidental variant of the original Suzuki Actor Training Method, with extra exercises that add Western zing to the Asian depth, proving Suzuki's universal application.

The FSAK was primarily created by John Nobbs and Jacqui Carroll. John is the Australian representative on the International Suzuki Symposium and Jacqui is the director of Ozfrank Theatre Matrix - seminal, subliminal, seldom seen, from South Brisbane, Australia.


The central mission of Frank Theatre is the creation of theatre which combines Australian form and content with Asian sensibilities and integrity of purpose to produce a Japan/Australian fusion theatre. The company will achieve this through the presentation of new interpretations of Australian and world stories which challenge orthodox theatrical practice through the use of a range of techniques including movement, dance, text, foreign language, music and multi-media.
The theatre's aim is to establish international 'world best practice' within the theatre arts in Australia and to be noted and applauded globally through Frank Theatre unique productions which reveal the actors' distinctive and special skills. Integral to the vision of the company's work is the development of the core ensemble members through the continuing exploration of the physically demanding and complex philosophical principles contained in the long term study of the Suzuki Actor Training Method.
Authors:John Nobbs and Jacqui Carroll
