Damien is an insightful and patient teacher. When I needed help with a role, he devised exercises and approaches on-the-spot to help me inhabit the character both physically and psychologically. He instilled confidence in me to perform and laid out a set of useful techniques for preparing and getting into role to use by myself during the run of the play. He is very knowledgeable about the craft of acting and I recommend him highly.
