Recursion – MA Creative Practices and Direction, Movement and Choreography student, 2015

Juliet teaches Laban and movement studies at Drama Studio London and the Guildford School of Acting at the University of Surrey where she is Pathway Leader for Movement Direction and Choreography on the MA in Creative Practices and Direction. 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. 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 moving human.
