LECTURER AND TEACHER
As a professional lecturer and teacher of acting, directing and theatre since the mid-1980s, Andrew has led workshops, given master classes and taught on undergraduate and post-graduate programmes. He has worked regularly with many high profile institutions in the UK, whilst pursuing a career as a dedicated professional performer.
Andrew’s interest in the dynamics of movement and space has motivated a close study of theorists and practitioners such as Rudolph Laban, Michael Chekhov, Peter Brook, and Vsevolod Meyerhold. He has led many workshops focussing on the psycho-dynamics of movement, of character and action, with students at the University of the Arts, Central St Martins (Drama Centre) and London College of Fashion, at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, the Benjamin Britten International Opera School and City Lit, as well as others.
With a substantial academic background in literature — Andrew read English Language and Literature at Oxford University — he has a fertile resource of knowledge at his disposal for the interpretation and staging of text. At RADA he has taught Shakespeare Sonnet classes, scene study with Jacobean and classic Realist texts. He has lectured and given seminars on a range of subjects from Doctor Faustus and The Tempest, to the historical and cultural context of the Restoration Stage, of Jacobean Revenge Tragedy, to Acting and Rhetoric, and the Theatre of Meyerhold.
He has supervised and taught the Shakespeare module for the International Theatre Directors’ MA/MFA at Middlesex University, and held a Visiting Professorship at Mills College, Oakland in the USA.
During the 1990s he worked as an Acting Tutor at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and for several years he also successfully taught the Realist project for the MA in Classical European Acting at Drama Centre, University of the Arts London.
He has worked as a lecturer or teacher at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, for King’s College London and RADA (MA Text and Performance), Rose Bruford College, Central School of Speech and Drama, LAMDA, Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
