MOVEMENT, PLAY, DISCOVERY, TRIAL-AND-ERROR, LAUGHTER, NEW THINKING, EXPLORATION, ADAPTATION, CREATIVITY, RESILIENCE

These are things that your brain is hard-wired to do from the moment it starts to function in the womb . They underlie everything that we are, all that we think, all that we are capable of.

I am a Senior Practitioner of The Feldenkrais Method, since 1999. I am an award-winning theatre director, actor and teacher of theatre skills since 1987. Me1rezaI now specialise in the devising, development and delivery of arts education projects that focus on an arts-based and somatic philosophy of learning. You can read more about me here.

I believe this: we can all do what we choose to do in a better, more enjoyable, more satisfying way if we so desire.

And more. We have the right to choose how we move through this world, how we engage with it, and, above all, to CHANGE how we operate as we encounter obstacles. I also believe  that obstacles are important for our sense of our self. Finding the work-around that an obstacle requires is satisfying on very many levels of our idea of our self.

I have worked with people with disabilities, professional performers, mothers, fathers, elders, children, writers, therapists, teachers, skiers, mountain-climbers, swimmers……all kinds of people in all kinds of occupations, and in many countries.

My work focuses on shedding light on processes of change and how we grow through awareness of them.

Bertolt Brecht, the great post-war German dramatist and poet wrote:

One can, with the last breath of one’s life, change everything!
