Kelly Foster, Theatre Arts Teacher (Part-Time)

I have studied theatre and performance as an undergraduate student at the Conservatoire and I have a Masters Degree in Theatre and Philosophy from Queen Mary’s, University of London where I specialised in late medieval and early modern performance practice. Part of this study involved exploring the effects of the second schism on narrative forms during the period.

I trained as an actor at RADA and LAMDA and spent 10 years working in London as an actor before moving to Paris to teach theatre and performance to international students.

During my time as an actor, I attended the Institute of Education, University of London to complete a PGCE in further education where I specialised in drama and performance.

My main focus is directing for performance, actor training and the theatre of the post-dramatic which currently forms part of my research for a future practice-based PhD which I hope to complete while living and working in London.

I am committed to bringing a rigorous actor training approach to my work in the drama classroom in order to allow students to develop the tools they need in order to produce challenging, original and creative performance work.
