Nine is a unique piece of interactive dance theatre that gives both the company and audience a chance to create a truly individual show. Mr and Mrs Clark use a combination of performance styles and film references to deliver a searching pastiche on modern living in...nine individual scenes. The audience have the power to choose not only the order of the show as it unfolds, but also to see sections repeated as many times as they wish, to establish and manipulate the underlying story. Nine was…See More

Drama Tutor/Workshop Facilitator and writer specialising in Community Theatre and working with youth theatres.
A little more about me:
An enthusiastic and experienced Applied Drama graduate (First Class), Drama Teacher and Freelance Workshop Facilitator. I specialise in working with youth theatres, early years, adults and children with learning difficulties, the elderly, and in using the methods of Augusto Boal, particularly Forum Theatre.
During my studies at the University of South Wales (3 years), I taught at a Youth Theatre for 5-17 year olds, taking performances to the Big Splash Festival 3 years running. I ran the 2013 Summer School there, to great acclaim from the participants, their families and the Mayors of Newport.
I have facilitated workshops for various clientèle including The Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, The Riverfront Theatre, Newport, Baneswell Day Centre (for adults with learning disabilities), Newport, the Hollies Special School, Cardiff (for children with special educational needs), Southampton clubs for the elderly, and The Court School, Cardiff (for children with social, emotional and behavioural problems) and numerous mainstream schools across South Wales.
I have also worked abroad, for FASTUK at the Ziurel Education Centre facilitating drama workshops and educational activities for Romany children aged 4-14 living in the shanty towns surrounding Brasov, Romania and at The Pinnacle School in New Delhi, India where I facilitated drama, dance and scriptwriting workshops and worked with the Girl Guides and Scouts.
Since then, I have worked on drama and dance projects with adults and teenagers with learning difficulties at The Point Theatre in Eastleigh and on many shows and projects based at The Nuffield Theatre, Southampton. I have taught for many Theatre Schools in South West England, including for a National Theatre School franchise, and currently teach Drama and Singing classes for Starcast Performing Arts School based in Salisbury.
I was a founding member, and chair of the University of Wales, Newport (now the University of South Wales) Creative Writing Society 'The Caerleon Scribblers' http://www.thecaerleonscribblers.co.uk/
I enjoy acting and making theatre so I'm always keeping an eye out for theatre opportunities.
I'm an Amnesty International campaigner and Wateraid speaker. I also love surfing,swimming,paddle-surfing, kayaking and body boarding, running, reading and discussing literature, singing and music, listening to poetry and attending spoken word events, going to gigs, making amateur films, astronomy and going to the movies as well as the theatre.
Projects I’m working on:
'Brave Bear Project' - I am working on 2 projects based on stories about teddy bears, the children's book 'We're going on a Bear Hunt', and using elements from the Disney Pixar film 'Brave', with my 2 groups of 'Mini Stars', the 4-7 year old children who attend Starcast. I have 2 very young groups, one of which is brand new, so the focus of these projects is on being brave, how to promote self-confidence and the basics of performing coming naturally from this. The children are enjoying singing 'Chase the Wind and Touch the Sky' from Brave and rehearsing their adapted versions of 'The Teddy Robber' and 'This is the Bear'. They are looking forward to showing their friends and families their hard work and having a celebratory end-of-term teddy-bear's picnic.
I will also be running two of my own Summer Schools during August, in Southampton, and subsequent weekly classes starting in September. Details to follow.
