I personalise my approach to suit my students individual need. I recently did some movement direction and text work on a fringe production of Medea. I’ve taken students one on one and in small groups and am passionate, and ready to adapt to any kind of special requests or situations. I believe communication is key and want to tailor and develop our work together as we go.
I’m an Actor with a BA from Drama Centre London, and an Adv Diploma from the London School of Dramatic Art. I have professionally and semi-professionally worked in the industry for 10 years in classical, comedic, improvised, physical and devised theatre, fringe touring theatre and short film, television and Voiceover work.
My classes will be tailored towards my students specific needs- what they are working for, and what particular goals they might have.
I want my students to begin to take ownership of their craft and time with me from the beginning so that they get the maximum benefit from working with me. This means I will listen carefully to what your thoughts and ideas are regarding the audition/exam/study material and character you are preparing, and help you to achieve this action physically through the body.
I like to be actively engaged in your process and will be more than happy to help you tackle any areas of tension, blockage or confusion regarding your work. I want to teach confidence and pride in the work and help you develop tools that you can call upon in the future.
If you are preparing a scene study for a class, working towards an audition, preparing for Drama School or wanting to top up and refresh your skills, I will be happy to help you prepare and become invigorated in your work.
Avena is a wonderful person who is dedicated to and incredibly good at her craft. She taught me so much when we worked together and I highly recommended her to anyone wishing to better their acting skills.
I work with Avena on a theatre production for which she intervene as a movement and voice director. She delivered workshops for the cast. As well as clarity support for international actors which can be a touchy but she dealt with it gracefully.
Avena has this great ability to see the hided potential in everyone she work with and take at heart to bring them to their best. She is kind but firm in here approche and deliver a personalized attention and tailor advices to individual. In my opinion what demonstrate her professionnalisme is her diplomatic way to handle her space with a group.
