« I’ve been following Silvestre’s work for the past years and I can, without a doubt, say that the growth has been tremendous. From an enthusiast to student to professional, Silvestre’s background and present abilities prove that he does have skill and he knows how to share it too. As a director, he has led actors to great places. He might look very young but he definitely knows what he's doing. Also, Silvestre's friendly and quite easy to get along with. I definitely recommend him. António O. »

Personalised One on One Acting Lessons with Experienced Professional Actor and Theatre Director

Methodology

My methodology begins by simplifying, by erasing the mind of unnecessary worries that only serve to block the actor, leaving them powerless and incapable of reaching their full potential.
This will be achieved through practical exercises (understanding through action and speech).

All can be great actors.
I don’t trust what is perceived as natural talent.
I believe real talent comes with interest, dedication and availability to work hard and in a way that is right for you.
What works for some may not work for you. And this shouldn’t be cause of frustration, it should be cause of excitement.
Different actions lead to different results. Difference brings true uniqueness. And your own uniqueness is what you should be working on.

I am aware each student has their own great potential and way of receiving and processing information.
I don’t use the same approach with all students. Each class is tailored differently and always in your favor.

As an individual, there’s no doubt you have what's necessary to achieve acting greatness.
I want to guide you towards a place that will surprise and excite you.
Your classes are all about developing your skills.
They are for you and only you.

Experience

. WHO AM I .

I’m a trained, professional and experienced Actor and Theatre Director who has recently moved from Lisbon to the UK.
I have a degree in Acting for Theatre and I had the wonderful opportunity to have been continuously working professionally as an actor for the past years. I’ve worked with many Theatre companies and in many Portuguese Theatres, The Nacional Theatre included.
Even though young, over the years, I’ve experienced and witnessed many particularities about the craft of acting that I find most valuable.
As a Theatre Director, I do hold a good amount of practical knowledge when it comes to directing actors, in guiding them as they reach a place they thought unreachable and that surprises all (actors, spectators and myself included). I’m talking about the uniqueness in each individual that can not be forced to shine. This “shinning uniqueness” is peculiarly difficult to describe but it is visible and reachable and I wish to guide you towards achieving such a valuable tool.

.

. ENGLISH LANGUAGE BACKGROUND .

I believe it’s important for me to add that I’ve been fluent in English ever since the age of 6 and I’ve, in the past, even worked part-time as an English teacher for adults. My native language might be Portuguese but this won’t stand in the way of proper communication while teaching. My spoken English is quite developed, you will have no trouble understanding me and I will have no trouble understanding you. Language won’t be a barrier between us.

- “Hitchcock Blondes” received the following review by Pedro Gil (actor and theatre maker): “It’s always wonderful to witness something unique that is difficult to define or categorize because it didn’t exist until we see it for the first time”
- “The Woman Who Only Lived One" reached number 6 in the top 30 shows of the 2019 (by Comunidade Cultura e Arte). This was accompanied by: “The young art maker, using the idea of an absolute funeral for Joan Crawford that gives her no possibility of resurrecting as a phoenix, brings to life a shadowy and nervous and David Lynch-like show that attacks the centre of its viewers’ brains with logical sentences, shouts of terror and silent actions.”
- "The Woman Who Only Lived Once" also recently rewarded Silvestre Correia with a nomination for Best Theatre Lighting Design of 2019 and the young actress who played the main character in that same play received her first nomination for Best Actress while performing that role under Silvestre’s meticulous direction. (the results have yet to be announced)
