My teaching & coaching approach builds on the importance of analysing text, physicalising the script, releasing the imagination, and having emotional availability and openness as an actor. This I develop with using different techniques and aiming to find ones that are suitable for each individual.

The training methods of Stanislavski, Michael Chekhov and Laban-Malmgren are amongst my own favourites. Building on these established skills and approaches, the actor is then empowered to discover and identify the tools most suited to further develop their own work on stage and in front of the camera.

Class types

1:1 Coaching

I offer one-to-one coaching for actors and consultation of writers and directors that is tailored to individual needs.

Advanced classes

Advanced classes (small groups) are organised on demand, so please get in touch if you are interested in day or evening sessions.

Screen acting classes

It’s essential for an artist to stay interested, open and keep learning with others. In between jobs creative people can continue to work on their craft. As a coach I can offer source material, inspiration, collaboration and technical guidance in a workshop environment. You may want to refresh skills obtained earlier, transition from stage to screen or simply attend for fun and make new friends. We will explore different approaches in building a character and develop your screen acting skills.

 

In addition to above, Collaboration between actors and directors is encouraged and can be provided in a safe rehearsal space in addition to script consulting sessions for writers & writing teams.
