Precision and Heart

Number one: MONOLOGUES


Talawa Theatre OLD STREET

Introductory Offer: £70

A day-long class for actors who would like to extend their practice in a rigorous way. We will  explore emotional fluency and detail. Attendance will require a degree of preparation in order to enable you to benefit most from the day’s work. The class will involve personal work on your chosen monologue, individual work with me and observation of others.

“My teaching centres around an axis of embodied transformation and creatively imagining identities. In my personal work as an actor I have created roles within contrasting performance paradigms: epic classical protagonists, psychologically real portraits within contemporary film, post-dramatic intertextual theatre, masked characters and autobiographical creation. My teaching is primarily invested in facilitating students to deepen their capacity to use themselves creatively in their work as well as framing processes of transformation through attentive analytic, physical and conceptual reflection. Ultimately, I believe knowledge of self informs and enriches the capacity for meaningful interpretation and embodiment of character within fictional worlds or real life.”

Previous clients include The National Film and Television School, The Giles Foreman Centre for Acting, Identity Drama School, Northampton University, Talawa Theatre Company, Brunel, and York University.

If you are interested please contact me below. In a couple of paragraphs concisely outline:

a) why you would like to participate-in what way you would like to grow

b) what experience and training you already have

I will select a group of ten to work with that I believe will be constructive as a learning ensemble. I am intending to create a series of workshops so we will be able to continue our research and possibly develop an ongoing class. If this class is not appropriate for you there may be other possibilities.
