Achievements

Following her training a CSSD, Clare had Lecoq training, with Ayse Tashkiran, a regular movement director at the RSC who inspired Clare to develop her creativity as a versatile performer. During 2004-2009, Clare was Artistic Director of her own Theatre Production Company: DANTE OR DIE with whom she produced a number of very successful off-west end shows. Working with this company enabled Clare to develop strong ensemble skills and during this time she collaborated with dancers, musicians, aerial artists and puppeteers from many different countries. Together they explored unique and exciting ways of devising in a rehearsal room: the blend of space, movement, text and music is a signature of DANTE OR DIE and certainly influences her teaching style. Clare is delighted to be part of the Arts1 team and contributing to our exciting and forward thinking institution.
