Listen: For the love of the stage, featuring Rinske Ginsberg

From an improvisational trapeze performer and fire eater in the 80s to a celebrated Melbourne Fringe ‘living legend’, movement lecturer Rinske Ginsberg reflects on a life on stage.

Acting is not natural – but it can be learned, and Rinske Ginsberg passes on her wisdom about how the body can express an internal state; as well what it takes to make it as an actor.

The Melbourne Fringe ‘living legend’ reflects on life in Melbourne’s radical arts scene of the 1980s, and how performance and art-making has changed since.
