Physical Theatre

The sublimely beautiful, tragic and hilarious story of the human experience is present in every move we make. My goal as a teacher is to guide people in the process of turning their individual creative impulses into performances that are powerful, both for them and for their audiences. I teach people to develop their own voices as creators and to learn, through consistent practice, the essential theatrical techniques that will make their performances work on stage.

 

I teach bespoke workshops and programs at universities and conservatories around the world and run trainings for professional performance companies.
