As a freelance coach and actor trainer, I specialise in audition technique, scene study, and show creation. I focus on the actor’s process by supporting them in finding ownership of the work. My knowledge of various practices and approaches provide me the tools necessary to communicate with theatre makers across a wide range of techniques no matter their working methodology. For this reason, I offer bespoke coaching tailored to your needs!
Coaching should be fun, challenging, destabilising, and bring something new to your performance, so get ready to be provoked into playing!
As a teacher and practitioner, I specialise in devising practices, Play, Live Art structures, Active Analysis (Stanislavski), Viewpoints (Bogart’s and Landau’s), and improvisation. My rehearsal processes vary from show to show but are drawn from practitioners such as Thomas Ostermeier, Told by an Idiot, Mike Alfreds, Frantic Assembly, and Complicité.
Other areas of interest include postmodernism, performance, Postdramatic theatre, Kaufman’s Moment Work, the work of Ivo Van Hove, and long form improvisation in theatre.
