Colin first trained and worked as an actor for over 10 years. He worked professionally in both South Africa and the UK before completing his Masters Degree in Voice at the prestigious Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2009. He has worked as a Vocal Coach and Actor Trainer in Higher Education since 2010, and began working with dyspraxic actors around this time.
Over the years he has developed a specialist interest in working with dyspraxic actors, and continues to research and develop in this area. Colin has gone on to complete a postgraduate certificate in Specific Learning Differences and continues to run workshops and sessions for several UK based Drama Conservatoire Schools, Shakespeare’s Globe and the Association of Dyslexic Specialists in Higher Education.
Colin is also a qualified Franklin Method Practitioner and Certified Lessac Practitioner. He continues to research the use of balls and ball therapy in actor training. Exploring the relationship between the mind and the body is at the heart of Colin’s practice of psychophysical performance and draws on current neuroscience and embodied movement practices.
