Lewis Barfoot

I run workshops, coach actors and non-actors alike in group and one-on-one sessions: addressing all aspects of performance, self confidence, the voice & voicing the authentic voice. I have led workshops in acting, physical theatre, devising and Shakespeare in the UK, America, Jordan, Israel and Spain for 1927 Theatre, Aquila Theatre (NYC), Youth Music Theatre (UK), The Theatre Workshop, The British Council and the British Ballet Organisation. As well as offering these specific workshops I create bespoke workshops to meet the specific needs of each group, individual or company.

The Embodied Archetype Workshops

These are empowering beautiful days full of courage and play.

Suffused with ritual, song and ceremony in celebration of the divine feminine experience.

"Archetypal patterns can help us shed light on the dark and little known corners of our souls

and amplify our own brilliance" Caroline Myss

I am delighted to be returning to Devon this year.

to facilitate a week's immersive artistic residency in a beautiful old farm in Devon,

surrounded by woods and rolling hills.  

We integrate our experience and knowledge of the body and voice to build an immersive process

and seek a greater truth and connection in performance. We will work as an ensemble, in small groups, pairs and solo. Working with movement, text, dance and song in a combination of core training as a company

and  specific solo and duet expressive work to culitvate your artistic practise and explorations.

The food is excellent - we have our own chef cooking for us and

the farm has their own vegetable patch and hens for fresh eggs

The accommodation is in a single story long barn by the studios.

You will each have your own room with shared bathroom facilities.

You will need to arrange your own transport
