Juliet trained as an actress (GSA) and for over a decade worked in theatre, T.V, film and radio (BBC; State Films; Wall to Wall, Channel 4; Touring Consortium; Aspect Films; Trilogy Theatre New York, U.S). Since gaining a Masters Degree in Somatic Studies and Labananalysis from the University of Surrey in 2005, she has applied Laban Movement Analysis to theatre and actor training both as a Movement Director (Young Vic ‘Doorway’ project; Theatre 503 @Latchmere; Half Moon Theatre; Brighton Fringe; Gulbenkian Theatre) and as a teacher (Rose Bruford College; Goldsmiths University London; E15 Acting School; Drama Studio London; Guildford School of Acting at the University of Surrey; as guest teacher/practitioner -Jiangnan University, China; University of Illinois, Chicago U.S; Reckless Ensemble Theatre, Chicago U.S).
Juliet teaches Laban and movement studies at Drama Studio London and Rose Bruford College. She is a PhD candidate at the Guildford School of Acting at the University of Surrey where she was Pathway Leader for Movement Direction and Choreography. Juliet offers a supportive method of training performers and drama professionals in movement and is committed to understanding the ways in which artists and audiences experience art through physical expression. She continues to be inspired by the possibilities of the moving human body, engaging in projects which explore the role of the body and human movement as a psychophysical phenomenon, in theatre and beyond. Juliet’s PhD research explores the intersections of Laban’s framework for movement analysis, spirituality and Authentic Movement, in the context of actor training. The Labanarium was conceived by Juliet as a way for practitioners, researchers, scholars, students, artists and anybody interested in human movement, to connect and to share their activities and experiences in discovering the potentials of the human moving.
