The Role

A newly created role has arisen within the Drama school, where we are seeking an Associate Tutor (Movement Awareness).

You will be teaching awareness through movement using slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind, whilst providing a safe and inclusive environment that supports all of our students in their learning and development. The movement awareness associate tutor will tie directly into functional movements for actors inspired by daily life, such as walking efficiently, safely lifting objects, and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing. Movement awareness classes always have a goal to be accessible to all and develop into applied movement awareness facilitating and making clear the relationship between awareness, expression and creative risk-taking for actors.

LAMDA offers a curriculum working with Feldenkrais Method® for actors and we give preference to Feldenkrais practitioners with experience in working with actors. We are also open to meet practitioners whose practice includes other somatic methods that can achieve the above-mentioned goals. In addition, your awareness practice, experience in other somatic practices like expressive movement for actors (lecoq, grotowsky, pure movement), dramatic acrobatics, dance, fight, intimacy is very welcome as complementary to the movement awareness teaching in specific and the movement department in general.

The ideal candidate will have the ability to stimulate and encourage the commitment to learn in others as well as the expertise in the part of the curriculum to be taught and the scholarship associated with it. Furthermore, you will have some experience of delivering teaching and/or training to actors, be a collaborative team player and contribute to innovation in the field of actor movement training.

LAMDA’s movement department is constantly looking for working beyond best practice, encouraging its team to contribute to our collective research in pedagogy of movement for actors, ensemble, inclusive practice, anti-racist practice, ecology, intimacy, fight and future technologies. We are interested in employing practitioners whose research aims and values align with ours.
