I am an Acting Coach and I help beginner and professional actors improving their skills.
You can work on a scene and get coaching and learn how to do script analysis, what's the Story Arc and how to use it for an audition or a job, how to make substituitions or personalisations, use your emotional memory and much more.
For me, the Strasberg Method is about being connected to one's own instrument, while also listening to your scene partners and, if on stage, the audience. I also offer screen acting sessions and a unique set of official Strasberg exercises that are very rare to find in Europe, such as the Private Moment, the Celebration, the Phone Call, Lost & Found, the Place of Defeat, and more. These 'steps' will put you in touch with your own self and 'shadow', as Strasberg believed truthful acting was also about your unconscious behaviour.
With the Actor's Intimacy training, you will learn how to become private in public, how to be seen and be heard, how to find your own style as a performer, how to detach from those things and people in your emotional memory that hold you back, not allowing you to break free and create pure art; how to improve your confidence and how to build a 'circle of protection' on a stage or film set; you will also learn how important feedback is, how to give it and how to receive it.
Ultimately you will open up your instrument and will have learnt how to open it and close it at will, and will have become more creative and free to make mistakes and be a truthful actor who trusts the scene and their scene partners.
This training is also suitable for singers, directors and writers, as performing is a profession intertwined with those, and they can all learn from each other.

Alexander is a great coach. He explains concepts very clearly and has a great emphatic capacity to guide you through your performance, making it a great one.
Since training with Alexander I am a more confident actress in the audition room and I find myself booking more jobs. I have learned a lot from him and I will keep training with him in the future.
I highly recommend Alexander.
I studied acting with him and I really enjoyed it
He is passionate and truthful.
Alexander is very honest in his work. He has a great capacity to read you and for an acting teacher this is gold, I believe. He challenges you and really cares about your growth as an artist.
Reliable, communication always prompt and smooth.
I strongly recommend his lessons!
