Ok, so anyone who knows me knows I love twitter… and social media in general… and I love helping other actors and creatives get their messages out and strengthen their own voice. I am very excited to say that I have been working with the awesome Keith Keller, Global Social Media Coach and Twitter Expert, on our Twitter 4 Performers audio product!! We are now live and available straight to your inbox!! So click on over to see what it’s all about. I’d love to know what you think – or if you have any twitter related questions – tweet me, using the hashtag #twitter4performers.
I’m starting rehearsals this week for a very special one off Anniversary celebration with [Foreign Affairs] ‘By Invitation Only’ – to celebrate 4 years of Pop-Up Theatre from the wonderful team! Ssssh – it’s a party! For one night only, this unique theatrical event will allow you to experience a range of dramatic pieces from around the globe, shuffling the theatrical tracks, from one moment to the next. You can find out more here.
I wanted to share the vox pop from our last [Foreign Affairs] Production, “Waiting on Shakespeare” – enjoy :) More exciting news is coming soon, stay tuned! xx
I’m currently in rehearsals for “Waiting on Shakespeare” – the next instalment from [Foreign Affairs]. We open on the 10th of December – nearly there!!
Our director, Claudio Hochman has been in the room with us via skype (as he is based in Portugal!!) and our cast of 8 has 7 different nationalities!
Certainly keeping the [Foreign Affairs] ethos alive!!
I’m loving the challenge of Shakespeare and the fun of working with such vibrant, joyous actors. We have launched our first kickstarter campaign, which you can check out here– please share it, tweet, post it, or donate – every bit helps!
If you’re in London, I hope you can make it to the show!
I have spent the last few days rehearsing (and newly discovering) the wonders and magic of puppetry in theatre for a work-in-progress performance at Little Angel Theatre. Working with the talented Alison Alexander of Genius Sweatshop and Kaveh Rahmana (So & So Circus, Gooseberry Moon) I jumped in at the last minute to be part of Lab Rat, a fusion of puppetry, circus and theatre. Having never done any puppetry until now, it was mildy terrifying, but so much fun, and I certainly hope to explore more puppetry soon!
I’m currently in rehearsals for [Foreign Affairs]’ upcoming production of “To Moscow With Love” – A Chekhovian love affair. I’m so excited about this project! I love working with the team at [FA] and we have a great cast including: Trine Garrett, Camila França, Fiona Watson (who’s also directing our physical theatre component), Kryzsia Balińska, Sam Archer, Matt Kyle, Will Timbers and Aidan Walker. We run 19-24th August at our Kingsway Pop Up Theatre venue in London’s West End. Super exciting!
I am thrilled to share with you all that the ladies at [Foreign Affairs] have asked me to become part of their Artistic Team! The power of 3! Stay tuned, there will be lots more coming from us. We have just started working from Mainyard Innovation and now the sky is the limit! You can find out more about [Foreign affairs] here.
I have recently had the pleasure of working with the London Youth Circus on their end of year show “All You Can Leave Behind”, directed by Citrus Arts founder/director James Doyle-Roberts. I went in to do some physical theatre work with the kids – we had a ball, exploring emotion, fun and human connection. The show was a big success and all involved should be proud! You can find out more about the London Youth Circus here.
What an honor to have been asked to play the role of Kristine Linde in this brand new translation of A Dolls House. I adore Ibsen’s work, and this translation by Paul Russell Garrett is stunning! Season runs from 20-24 Nov 2012 at Kingsway Pop Up Theatre, Holborn. West End baby! Directed by Camila Franca and featuring magnificent actors Trine Garrett, Adam Mannering, Jamie Pigott and Jason Denyer. I love sharing the stage with such wonderful actors.
