Lewis Barfoot

I trained at ALRA graduating in 2002 with a "Critics choice" in the Stage. I've have had some pretty cool experiences over the years. Highlights include making my first solo show - "the history of the pomegranate" and being awarded an Arts Council Grant to make it. Touring the world with 1927 was a great experience: 21 countries in 11 months! Part of the role was being an ambassador for the arts with the British Council which was awesome,  a bit scary and a huge learning opportunity to engage in talks about and palpably feel the benefit of sharing theatre between cultures. Playing Queen Isabel opposite Kevin Spacey in Richard II was a blast of wonderment. And working with Kath Burlinson on the devised show WOLF, was a rocket blast of authenticity and learning and where I met my dear husband. I still work as an actor and love collaborating with people on modern visual work and classical beautiful texts, so give me a call if you want to work with me.

I sing, I dance, I act.
