Devised Theatre IAB Institute of the  Art, BA (Hons) Acting, Barcelona:

From 2017 I am teaching a Devised Theatre module at IAB. My work is based mainly on the Russian school (Stanislavski and Chekhov) but also resonates with the visual culture I have study and worked with.  Every project has a specific theme within which students are asked to find their own voice, work independently and collaboratively and create their own work. I have directed the workshop and the production of  "Alice in Wonderland", written and devised by Year 3 IAB, 2019
