About Annie Stainer

Having studied dance at the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance in London, and Mime with Etienne Decroux in Paris, Annie established her reputation in Britain and Europe. She has performed with Lindsay Kemp, David Bowie and Steven Berkoff, but is best known for her work in solo physical theatre.

In 2002 she established Total Theatre, her highly acclaimed School of Physical Theatre training for young people in Perth. For over a decade, Total Theatre went on to create a uniquely accessible, vibrant and popular form of performance, fusing together theatre, dance, song and circus, and regularly playing to sold out audience

The Performers Craft 

Annie’s unusual approach to the training of the performer has a breath-taking simplicity that peels away the false facades and heavy armour of technique and invites a return to the wellspring of our inner knowledge. Guided by her funny and poignant story-telling, participants begin to surrender and play, extending their boundaries and regaining the joy and freedom of self expression. The workshop is suitable for performers from all disciplines and has the startling effect of helping anyone to improve anything! 

This unique workshop will include Annie’s special blend of Creative Movement, Physical Theatre, Mime, Feldenkrais, Improvisation and Dance.

Suitable for experienced performers and beginners alike. (17 years+)

• Move with joy, spontaneity and free your inhibitions.

confidence.
