Originally from the UK, Daniel is a practitioner with an international portfolio of work spanning acting, voice, movement, and music. He graduated with honours from the Actor-Musicianship course at Rose Bruford College in 2008, and completed his MFA in Voice Studies at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama in 2016. Thus far his work has taken him across much of Europe, the Levant, the Arabian Gulf, Russia, and Central/East/South-East Asia.
He worked extensively on new actor-training models with Bred in the Bone Theatre Company at the Grotowski Institute in Wrocław, Poland; spent several periods working with The Freedom Theatre in Jenin Refugee Camp, Palestine, and has served numerous UK conservatoires as a Senior or Visiting Lecturer, in addition to a range of similar roles at institutions around the world. As a performer, he has worked across the commercial sector in the UK on stage and screen and was a signed artist to Decca Records with The Punchbowl Band, which also led to work on Hans Zimmer’s soundtrack for Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes.
Daniel has first-hand experience with several major practitioners and their methods, having been taught by the late Cicely Berry, Kristin Linklater, and Meribeth Dayme, in addition to Catherine Fitzmaurice, David Carey, and a plethora of diverse practitioners from around the world. His primary focus is set on working with the reality of what is present in the room, and draws on his wide-ranging knowledge to support this. He also retains a passion for empowering students, challenging somatic norms, and striving towards equitable and inclusive practice.
