I have trained professionally for three years at the No. 1 University for drama, dance and cinematics (Guardian, 2019) (Sunday Times, 2019)
East 15 Acting School.

I trained on a summer course at GITIS (The Russian Academy of Theatre Arts).

I also trained in Austria with The Ostrenko Brothers. As you can see I have a passion for Russian theatre training as well as all other training and I am an enthusiastic, committed and adaptable learner/employee/actor.

I regularly take part in fringe theatre as well as directing, covering a range of production roles both in education and in public productions.
My most recent show was called 'The Dentists Teeth' which explores the existential crisis of a man ahead of his time and frustrated with the present, it is a physical theatre piece which I perform in. My two other shows explore political subjects.

I write my own work, direct, act and have experience assistant directing professional directors as well as large set production and making the most of a budget.

Thank you for taking the time to read about my artistic endeavours. I would love to talk about the skills I have also attached to the CV on another occasion.

Extras

Previous speaking roles


Currently working on my one women show which will incorporate Bharatanatyam dance drama, Butoh dance and rap.

I was most recently in The Beaux’ Strategem at South London Theatre directed by Dave Hollander. I played Gipsy.

During third year of acting school I played roles that expanded the use of my physicality, movement-language and overall characterisation.
In the first term I played a fortune teller Hala Abadi in a devised piece of a surviving group of people outside a house, whereon the inside the opposing group thought of us to be an infected race of humans named ferals. This was directed by Fumi Gomez. My movement syllabus when I went to a trance state was directly inspired from Balinese theatre forms of Baris Presi and Topeng Keras dance.

In second term I was part of the Greek chorus styled Skriker from The Skriker written by Caryl Churchill.

In third term we devised a show about the effect humans have on bees. I played the Male drone bee using Clowning, Buffon and Slapstick comedy. I also took the role of Head of Set on this project.
