Adler Technique Acting Training. For Drama School Entrance or help with productions.

Methodology

As a graduate from the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in Manhattan, NY I have access to the knowledge shared amongst all reputable drama schools as well as a specific understanding of Adler technique. The Adler technique is a methodology of acting particularly focused on releasing the intense capabilities of our imagination and it is very hard to find Adler training in the UK. I am however trained across all methods of acting, including Meisner and Strasberg for example and understand the usefulness of accessing a variety of methods to identify what exactly is suited to the individual. I base my training on building an understanding of the Adler Technique primarily but will offer alternative technique training when I feel it may offer you more in a specific circumstance.

I have been personally trained by titans of acting and voice education such as Todd Thaler, Sam Schact, Alithea Phillips, Jimmy Tripp, Jane Boston, Barbara Houseman, Andrew Wade and Anthony Zerbe. Most importantly, I have worked with Ron Burrus as an actor and have also shadowed him as a teacher for years.

The Adler Technique teaches the actor how to work indepently in a stimulating manner rooted in the activation of the imagination while maintaining presence. Key principles we will cover include:

1. Experiencing your acting (above all)
2. Justification + Imagination = Stimulation
3. Non-Verbal Reactions
4. Feelings
5. The Present and Presence
6. Acting Scores
7. Character Actions
8. Awareness without Judgement
9. Specificity
10. Owning your Language

Famous students and practictioners of the Adler Technique include: Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Benicio Del Toro, Mark Ruffalo, Melanie Griffith, Salma Hayek, Harvey Keitel and many many more.

One of our best tutors! High-quality profile, qualifications verified and response guaranteed. Atticus will plan your first lesson with care.

Experience

I am a professional working actor with international and west end stage experience as well as many voiceover credits. I have trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London and the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York.

I primarily operate as a Voice, Speech, Accent and Acting coach nowadays. I shadowed Ron Burrus as a teacher and trained under him as an actor for years. Ron is the primary source of Adler technique training in the world, he shadowed Stellla Adler personally for 10 years and that lineage of knowledge continues with myself and others. I am the only Adler technique teacher based in the UK however.

He’s a great guy, had the pleasure of working with him in a play, most supportive member of the cast, super passionate and loves teaching. Would pay him for lessons myself.

Atticus is responsible, trustworthy and highly professional. I have known him this summer while working as Senior Teacher on a residential summer schools for secondary age students.

He would be an asset to any team, and us particularly gifted as a teacher to children and adolescents.

D
Damien

I've known Atticus for years now, and I'm always blown away by the extensive knowledge and intelligence he possess. He's very well read, and has the inclination to delve deeper into the subjects he's studied to formulate ideas that show in his teaching. He's also a great guy and one in whom people look up to. I highly recommend him!

M
Mack

Extremely talented actor and coach. Atticus has a true gift and is equally kind and generous with his time on and off the set. Anyone would be lucky to be taught by him, couldn't recommend more highly!!

H
Holly

Atticus has been an outstanding member of our team. I have worked with him for two years and he has shown himself to be passionate and dedicated in his approach to educating and inspiring children.

T
Taylor

Atticus was always punctual and prepared for our sessions. He helped me to feel comfortable and confident and I always knew I could count on him to be present physically and mentally when meeting with him. He has a true passion for both acting and teaching and has a serious ability to connect and inspire his students. I’ve had nothing but the most positive experiences working with Atticus and would wholeheartedly recommend him as a tutor.

E
Erin

After spending 4 weeks with Atticus i learned more about the entire acting process, as well as about myself than i ever did. He really works with you, and really brings out your best version of yourself.

V
Vanessa

Atticus has lead our drama workshops with students aged 12-17 over the last 6 years and I can honestly say he is the best Drama tutor you could wish for!! He is an extremely talented actor and combines it with an exceptional ability to communicate, teach and train others. He can motivate and develop every student at their own level and ensure that every student leaves his workshops and tutorials with a passion for drama and a guaranteed development in skill and drama abilities. I can whole heartedly recommend Atticus as a tutor for Acting / Drama.
